Edit: your source :"The FiT isn't a subsidy, strictly speaking" your reading skill in understanding is very low because you write:"Britain opting out of subsidising Solar power"
and hey they don't opting out they just lower it : "domestic tariffs will fall from 43.3p/kWh to 21p/kWh,"
but compare this to germany lower it to 0,16€/kwh this means germans is lower right now for big solar power plants-
also "micro-power generation" this is my point of view and i do have a micro-heat and power-generator for over 6 years now.
If we want to obtain the advantages of the sunís energy by using solar panel, we must be supportive with it. If the government will be not supportive, then donít expect the progression of your solar power system. A solar power project requires financial assistance to help the users bearing the high purchase costs of the solar systems.
Their government prefers to subsidize nuclear power:
Ministers planning 'hidden subsidies' for nuclear power
Britain has been failing a lot as of late.
