The White House

Installed in 2002, the system includes 145 roof-mounted solar panels, 3 grid-tied inverters and utility interconnection.For this project, Aurora performed:

  • Feasibility Study –Site Analysis
  • Site Selection
  • Comprehensive Design, Documentation, Construction
  • Installation
  • Commissioning and System Performance Validation

In 1979, President Carter had predicted the then-installed solar water heater on the White House grounds will “either be a curiosity, a museum piece, an example of a road not taken, or it can be just a small part of one of the greatest and most exciting adventures ever undertaken by the American people.”

We agree.
