Obama and Wheaton neighborhood team up against climate change

President Barack Obama signed a series of executive orders Monday designed to address climate change. One of the orders, which initiated a DOD Privatized Housing Solar Challenge, hits close to home - right here in Wheaton, Maryland.

The Obama order designates the Glen Haven apartments, a Balfour Beatty military housing community on McMahon Road, as one of the Solar Challenge sites.

A press release from the White House promises that the solar power project in Wheaton, and 11 other military housing sites nationwide, will reduce annual carbon emissions by approximately 324 metric tons.
