This is idiotic and depressing. On a personal level, I had planned on trying my hand at developing new applications of solar technologies to help the third world with their difficulties. I purchased a penthouse with two terraces and I was preparing to purchase another next year for my tinkering studio. I can find other technologies to use, so it’s not the end of the world for me. If this is limited to photovoltaic solar, I may still be able to use the sun’s energy for other purposes, such as a better solar oven.
So they are now in effect taxing the sun. Shame on PP.
