I’m so glad the U.S. has a more efficient marketplace than those socialist European countries. That oft-parroted talking point must be the reason that Germany installed more than twice as much solar PV in December 2011 than the U.S. did in January through December 2011. That’s right: twice as much in 1/12th the time at half the cost.
It’s a good thing we Americans have everything figured out already. Otherwise, we would be trailing in installing technologies that we invented. Oh wait, we are trailing. The bottom line: feed-in tariffs work.
