Day 1: Let me go buy some solar panels and put them in my back yard.

Day 2: Wait, there's not much current coming from those things

Day 3: Holy crap! Where did that forest come from?!?!?

If memory serves, that law was passed when some of the first solar hot water panels were installed, then some company built a tall building that shaded the panels. Who knew then that solar electric would become viable?
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
