Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
is that solar is already GW-sized and still 4-5 times (at least) more expensive than traditional power sources. The FIT is necessary to get the technology to improve and become cheaper, but the cost in the meantime is becoming significant. The only solution is to persist, but it gives opponents of renewables some easy sticks with which to beat supporters in our age of soundbites and simplistic arguments.
