Spain Reportedly Instituting Tax on Sunlight

So that homeowners can't collect solar energy for cheaper than the state firms offer

|

Proving that idiocy truly has no bounds, Spain issued a "royal decree" taxing sunlight gatherers. The state threatens fines as much as 30 million euros for those who illegally gather sunlight without paying a tax.

The tax is just enough to make sure that homeowners cannot gather and store solar energy cheaper than state-sponsored providers.
