spain thanks systems regulation friendlier solar panel soar

Solar panel systems soar in Spain thanks to friendlier regulation
Here's an interesting article about solar power:

I must say I have been put off the idea by all the bureaucratic hurdles, but it looks like things are changing.  However, it still seems very expensive.

We I have a system that includes 16 pv panels and a 5kw battery here in Ireland. We are getting over 100% of what we use which includes charging a Kona 64 ev since February. This will last about eight months of the year. November December and January to mid February last we got back approx 50% of what we used. (If the owner of a vacant property beside us would trim his unruly trees we would have a lot more light in the winter months).  We didn’t have the Kona last winter but at the moment car charging is free if I charge In the service stations or the slow public ones and there may be a charge introduced soon but no matter how you look at it it’s cheap as chips running both the  house and car. 
Total cost including car charge approx €12000 less €3800 grant and €600 car charger grant total cost about €7600. I would expect at least a saving of €2500 per year so in three Years it should break even. And that’s not taking future fuel and electricity increases. 
 The purchase price of the car is approx the same as what I was driving (Audi A4) and the Kona is much more fun to drive.

If the governments want to be anywhere near the zero emission targets they have to make it easy and cheap. Just like the LED lights adoption. If LED lights were too expensive or pain to change them, nobody would use them.
