Yeah, I think there is something missing there... the $1314 is for a KW Hour 
at 15 cents all year... that would be using 1000w per hour.  Three or four 
PC's would eat that up, but thats not the cost savings for a little 
difference in watts

I am not sure of the breakout from there, but  I have to agree with Brian...

Without good motivation, science and technology, instead of helping, bring 
more fear and threaten global destruction. Compassionate thought is very 
important for humankind.
-His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Wisdom does not mean knowledge but experiential understanding. Wisdom helps 
you to change radically your habits and perceptions, as you discover the 
constantly changing, interconnected nature of the whole of existence.
-Martine Batchelor, "Meditation For Life"
