Spain privatizes the sun


Spain privatizes the sunIn wanted by using the sun

The new Government's energy reform have many side effects. Among them to create a new group of outlaws: the "solar criminals". This follows from the Royal Decree (RD) on consumption and production with consumption made public. Similarly, anyone who has a solar panel on your roof or any other system for renewable electricity production itself must register to start paying the new "backup toll" (term coined by Iberdrola). Whoever does not do may be penalized up to 60 million euros.

Clearly the disproportionate measure and can only meet the requirement of large utilities, with Iberdrola to the head (# Tepillamosiberdrola). The intention is to root out any possibility of consumer energy independence, which would run counter to the economic interests of Iberdrola and UNESA other companies. I just missing it more and more citizens were put to generate your own electricity at home (now cheaper) and stop consuming that which comes from gas power plants, coal or nuclear for these large companies. What audacity!

The RD will have consequences. The first: many people directly removed the solar panels from their rooftops. But also, have the opposite effect: make others choose not to meet the standard and will become solar considered criminals. Although the sun belongs to everyone, Spain becomes the first country in the world where it can not be used freely. And this thanks to Iberdrola and to unESA. But the worst is that it has been ratified by our Government statutory language.

Unfortunately the RD on consumption is not the only intention to end the renewable and sustainable future of our country. In two weeks the Government, via the National Energy Commission, has sent 14 texts which energy reform want to be "definitive". In an exercise of lack of transparency and participation claim that citizens and consumers accept such nonsense caliber. If finally validated these rules and laws, we will go back to the caboose on energy issues. Therefore, Greenpeace and other environmental organizations have informed the Government of its outright rejection of reform
