SPAIN has taken its first steps towards abolishing the controversial ‘sun tax’.
The Council of Ministers approved a royal decree on Friday, introducing urgent measures to force the country’s transition to a clean and accessible energy model, including eliminating the so-called sun tax.
The main focus of the decree is to introduce a law supporting self-consumption across Spain, meaning you can create your own energy.
Meanwhile NGO Greenpeace welcomed the changes but is urging the government to take further action and introduce a tax that forces ‘the polluter to pay’.
