Gore answers critics; gets permission to use solar power at his Tennessee home

Former Vice President Al Gore gained approval today from his upscale neighborhood to install 33 solar panels on the roof of his mansion.Advertisement
 
A leading voice against global warming, Gore's plans to install solar panels was blocked by Belle Meade rules.


A new ordinance now limits their placement to areas where they can't be seen by neighbors.
T
he panels are expected to generate over 6 thousand kilowatt-hours per year and last a quarter century.


Gore has been criticized by a conservative group that claims his mansion uses too much electricity.


A Gore spokeswoman said the home is more than 70 years old and illustrates the challenges of renovating an older home to conserve more energy.


Gore already buys enough energy from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and methane gas to balance 100 percent of his electricity costs.
