Obama will be sworn in on Jan. 20, and he said he wants to work quickly to make the White House "green."
The president-elect said he plans to sit down with the chief usher for the presidential mansion and do an evaluation of its energy efficiency.
"Part of what I want to do is to show the American people that it's not that hard," Obama said.
