Soon, you'll be able to get your coffee black, light or even solar.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters of Vermont is looking to the sun to help cut its electric bill.

The company is planning a major solar power installation this spring.

More than 500 panels will be placed on top of Green Mountain's distribution center.

Coffee company officials say the project is expected to produce enough electricity to run the equivalent of 16 houses year-round.

That's a lot of juice for a cup of joe.
