Get ready for some home improvement at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

On Tuesday, the Obama administration announced plans to install solar panels on the White House roof.

“This project reflects President Obama’s strong commitment to U.S. leadership in solar energy and the jobs it will create here at home,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu in a statement. “Deploying solar energy technologies across the country will help America lead the global economy for years to come.”

Chu and White House Council on Environmental Quality Chairwoman Nancy Sutley announced the plan Tuesday at CEQ’s GreenGov symposium hosted by George Washington University.

The Energy Department-led project will install two White House solar systems — one that converts sunlight into electricity, and a solar hot water heater for the White House residence.

President Carter first installed solar panels on the White House roof, but they were removed during the Reagan administration.

President George W. Bush used solar systems to power a maintenance building and some of the mansion, and to heat the pool, according to The Associated Press.
