The White House announced on Saturday that President Obama will be hosting a discussion about his new home retrofitting proposal at a Home Depot store in the Washington D.C. area.

The event will be invitation only, and will focus on "the economic impacts of energy saving home retrofits." According to the White House press release, the President intends to "solicit ideas" from members of the labor, manufacturing and small business communities.

Last week, Obama asked Congress to create incentives for homeowners who make their property more energy efficient.
