Put Solar on All Government Roofs when built or repaired

Roofing Projects for new government buildings and for Repairing existing government buildings is expensive, but it would Save a lot of money over time if we added Solar Panels at the same time as roof work is being contracted. The installation costs would be reduced greatly and the electrical savings would more than make up for the smaller construction cost over time and would lower our dependence on energy. It would also keep government working during emergencies if the power goes out in some cases. Finally, before the government signs any leases with Private Office Space providers, they should be required to add Solar to thier Roofs or to provide Solar if the Roof is replaced as well. By giving incentives to the Private sector as well to go solar we can get the Fed to go truly Green and save Green money.
