White House, which has already contributed to protecting the environment by being in possession of a garden planted with vegetables, plans to install solar panels on the roof of the living area early 2011, said on Tuesday U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu.

He was at a conference in Washington, dedicated to finding ways for the federal government to improve its environmental performance, said that the solar panels used for heating water and cover part of the electricity needs of U.S. President Barack Obama and his family, quoted the AP.

Former U.S. presidents Jimi Carter and George W. Bush during their stay in the White House were also using solar energy.

In the late seventies, Carter has spent $ 30,000 to install solar water heating systems for offices in the West Wing, while the solar systems built during the reign of Bush supplied electricity to the building and maintenance of the residential complex, and it was used for heating water pool.

Obama, who advocates the use of renewable energy sources, was exposed to increasing pressure to serve as an example to others by making solar systems installed in the White House.

Officials say that the idea was discussed from the moment when Obama took over as president.
