    This is good news. Next time ’round I bet they use these instead:

    “For example, a $684,000 investment (after rebates) in PV panels would
    generate 90 percent of the company’s annual power needs and save roughly
    $52,000 a year on its electric bill. An array of 750 Sunflowers would
    deliver the same benefits for $228,000.”
    Hard to beat.
