Turn Federal Building Rooftops into Solar Collectors

My suggestion is for every federal building to allocate 20%-30% of its rooftop space for solar energy. Solar cells would be tied into the grids of DC electric companies. As electricity is generated, meters would automatically move backwards saving the federal government money, enough to offset the cost of this equipment within 5-years or less (especially on weekends, when little or no staff is present).
