How's this for a novel way to educate people about wasteful government subsidies for solar power

As explained in a post at Carpe Diem, Jeffrey Punton decided to install solar panels on his home as a means of educating people about, in effect, how inefficient and wasteful installing solar panels can be.  Here's Punton:
About solar energy, Mr. Punton said “I liked the idea, but when I looked into it, it was clear that the only way it made sense was with these inordinate government subsidies. And after pondering that for awhile, I decided I would install the solar panels to educate people about what the cost of the subsidies is to them as taxpayers. I’d say at least one person a week I discuss it with as they stop by, so I think I’ve reached quite a few people.”
