I'm Gonna Be SOOOOO Bad!

This is indeed Bad Science... solar panels don't use "fuel" so to discuss their "fuel efficiency" is nonsensical. Make mine anthracite or jet.

Not to defend the error about "fuel use" by solar panels, but once could account for the energy used during the manufacture and recycling of the solar panel, e.g. the lifecycle energy "efficiency."
