Israeli President Shimon Peres has embarked on a mission to transform his official residence in Jerusalem into an environmentally-friendly compound.
An Israeli company specializing in solar power has been contracted by Peres' office to install a system that will eventually provide Jerusalem's "President House" with clean electricity. Most of the power will be supplied by solar panels installed over the large car port adjacent to the residence.
The first target of the advanced solar system will be the large heating and air conditioning needs of the landmark house.
