Table Talk: Solar Panels at the White House

687353-001

Each week, The Huffington Post presents a compelling topic to spark discussion at your dinner table.

The White House is getting greener: the installation of solar panels on the First Family’s residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue began last week. Solar panels use light from the sun to make electricity.

President Carter actually installed solar panels in the White House long before President Obama did, but President Reagan later had them removed. President George W. Bush also had a small solar heating system installed.

Tonight, let’s talk about what this example means for the rest of the country — and how we can work to make our own lives greener at home.

Questions for discussion:

* How do solar panels save energy?

* Would you consider using solar panels for your home?

* What are some ways you can conserve energy around the house?
