OAKLAND, Calif. , Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sungevity, a recognized leader in the global solar market, issued the following statement in response to news reports that the White House is installing solar panels this week:

"Sungevity applauds President Obama for upholding his commitment to renewable energy by putting solar panels back on the White House. Solar is fast becoming America's most popular home improvement, and we are very pleased to see the First Family follow the American peoples' lead. Support for solar energy is one issue that rises above the political fray. All Americans can reap benefits from widespread solar adoption – solar power saves money, boosts the economy and creates jobs.

Putting solar panels back on the White House sends a strong message to the American public and the world that the United States has the technology, resources and ability to supply cleaner, more efficient energy alternatives.

We urge the President to continue demonstrating his support for renewables. Actions speak louder than words. Today we recognize and applaud President Obama's action."

Sungevity helped lead the effort to get solar panels back on the White House. In 2010, their Globama petition garnered over 50,000 signatures and was successful in getting President Obama to commit to go solar. To learn more visit:
