4. Yes, there are. Both Solar Electricity and Solar Hot Water
I know a few of the folks involved in the installations. The systems were installed around 2003 by Aurora Energy, Daystar, and Solar Design Associates.
There is a 9 kW system installed on a maintenance building on the grounds of the White House featuring Evergreen panels. The system feeds back electricity into the White House's distribution system.
There are also two Solar Hot Water systems installed. One for grounds maintenance and one is installed on the White House pool cabana to heat the pool.
So the systems aren't exactly installed "ON" the White House itself, just on the White House grounds. I believe the systems are still working. It's been about 10 years now.
