Germany considers additional solar PV subsidy cuts

Germany is considering cutting incentives for solar photovoltaic energy by an additional six per cent in another step on March 1, 2012, Environment Minister Norbert Roettgen said.
 
According to Reuters, Roettgen said the government was considering such a move as part of the reform of the Renewable Energy Act. The feed-in tariff, or incentives, for photovoltaic is already scheduled to be cut in July 2011 and January 2012.
 
He said, however, that in exchange rules on solar power systems on open fields could be relaxed.
