Not necessarily. A large part depends on cost/benefit analysis and return on investment. For instance, given the present cost of solar electric arrays (installed), a person wanting to install a 20 kW system to make his home energy self-sufficient (at least during daylight hours) would require more than twenty years to amortize the cost of the system through reduced electric bills. And since the warranteed life of a solar electric array is 20 years, as soon as you are in a position to begin making money, you have to think about replacing your system.

I periodically compare moronic decisions and policies by governments in the United States and United Kingdom. You can peruse some jaw-dropping examples by clicking this link.

To show that politicians and bureaucrats don’t have a monopoly on stupidity, I’ve also shared a pair of examples that expose foolishness in the private sector.
