Solar power is in steep decline, also in the UK:
Solar panel installations have fallen by almost 90% in the weeks since the government halved cut the subsidy available, according to Department of Energy and Climate Change figures.
The UK figures should not come as a surprise to anybody. They just confirm what has been known for long: When Green taxes and subsidies are cut, the renewables die.
The solar industry is in a global decline as governments have cut taxes and subsidies. This is a sound development: The sooner we get rid of the "green" solar bubble, the better.
There is more than enough of affordable and dependable energy available - e.g. conventional and unconventional gas and oil - for future needs, both in the UK and elsewhere. That is also where the real jobs are.
