Shine light on solar law

- +

I am somewhat confused by Dr Decharut Sukkumnoed's excellent article on renewable energy (''Let's go renewable to solve power crises'', BP, April 23) in which he states that due to the necessity of a construction licence, ''renewable energy sources are prohibited from being located in residential and agricultural zones''. 

In Wednesday's article ''Low Energy Living,'' we heard from two people who have installed solar panels on their houses. Have they managed to obtain the aforementioned construction licences, or are they just ignoring the law because it is a stupid one?

Perhaps I am missing something? I would also appreciate clarification on this matter.
