Solar Panels to be Installed at Illinois Governor's Mansion

Another place in Illinois is joining the list of venues in the state with solar panels: It's the governor's executive mansion

Gov. Pat Quinn says installing them will help bring the governor's official residence into the 21st century.

A statement from his office says the solar panels are being donated. So is the racking and bracketing.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 193 is donating the installation labor.

Quinn made the announcement on Sunday to coincide with the Global Work Party. That's a day of action for those committed to fighting climate change.
