Give Me The Statsfinal
 Vulcan Solar Power installed this legit 132-kilowatt solar photovoltaic energy system for Marx Brothers.  It should create more than 205,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity.  That’s enough to power over 16 homes or 35% of the company’s annual electricity bill.
The newly-installed panels will eliminate the same amount of CO2 that is produced by 33 cars in just one year.
And the best part is it has a minimum lifespan of 30 years.  That equals enough power for 460 homes for a whole year which is the amount of C02 by 912 cars.
