Sol Invictus

Trailer for A Road Not Taken, which tells the story of the White House solar water heater.

“...a generation from now, this solar heater can either be a curiosity, a museum piece, an example of a road not taken, or it can be a small part of one of the greatest and most exciting adventures ever undertaken by the American people; harnessing the power of the Sun to enrich our lives as we move away from our crippling dependence on foreign oil.” -- Jimmy Carter, June 1979

Reagan had the panels removed during his time in office.
