The Denver International, for example. Currently has four gardens solar panels that can generate 3.1 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. And recently, the US Navy has made a deal to buy a solar panel farm in Arizona to help provide strength at 14 US military bases in California. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MASHABLE ASIA]
