Solar company Sungevity is offering President Obama a free rooftop solar power system for the White House and to get his attention they've launched the Globama campaign.
Sungevity is offering the 102-panel, 17.85 kW solar system, installation and warranty as a free donation, at no cost to the Obamas, the government or tax payers. The only costs associated with the panels would be the upkeep and maintenance. In case the president isn't comfortable with the $107,900 donation, they're also offering a 10-year lease of the equipment at $537/month with maintenance and monitoring included.
To sell the idea and to get us all onboard, Sungevity created a website, SolarOnTheWhiteHouse.com, where the company has laid out a full quote, detailing the financial aspects, utility savings, technical information and environmental benefits of the installation. Also at the website, you can sign a petition asking the president to accept Sungevity's offer.
According to Sungevity, the solar array would reduce the White House electricity bill by 81 percent, or $1,610/month.
