White House Solar Panels Still Stuck in 'Procurement' Limbo

It’s been over six months since a White House official last updated the nation on the status of the rooftop solar panels previously announced for spring 2011. Back in September, the word “procurement phase” was stamped on the project. And today?

“They’re in the procurement phase right now,” Jonathan Powers, Federal Environmental Executive, told USAToday. “It’s complex because of the historic nature of the house, the security needs of the house. It’s symbolically huge as far as leadership, but there are so many places where that leadership is really coming through.”

YAWN. This has been your six month update. Anyone want to take any guesses on what we’ll be talking about on the three-year anniversary of this non-existant symbol of renewable energy leadership?

    They (the original panels) would still be up there from the Carter Administration if the GOP weren’t so “alternative energy phoebes”. So, I hope that this time they ere installed in a manner that they would become a historical fixture and not to be removed. Wait and see I guess…
