One thing to consider is that if the electricity was supplied by a coal fired
power plant (as is most likely in the US), then the 3946 KWH results in 7900 lbs
of CO2 emission, and the 1109 liters of oil results in "only" 5900 lbs of CO2
emissions.  This seems a major point in favor of the solar solution to me?
