Let’s Take A Look At Solar Feed-In-Tariff WorldWide

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Reader,

(Please click on red links below)

I’ve been quite busy this past week setting up Sun Is The Future Online Stores, which may also be found in the right hand margin under Information (below the search box). There has been so much news and activities in the solar world that I shall be posting frequently in the coming week. For those of you who have been with Sun Is The Future for over two years, you probably realize that I am a strong  proponent/ supporter for Solar/Renewable Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) policy.  To refresh our memory of some of our past posts:

Why FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) ?

Periodically, I still receive emails from viewers/visitors asking “what is feed-in-tariff?” Below is a clip of explanation of what FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) incentive policy is in its simplest form, by R. James Woolsey, on July 15, 2011.


Who Supports FITs (Feed-In-Tariff) ?

In addition to my collection of posts at www.sunisthefuture.net , I would like to share with you some valuable links/articles sent by my renewable/wind energy friend, Paul Gipe, below:

Finally, a wonderful resource from NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory): A Policymaker’s Guide To Feed-In-Tariff Policy Design and the latest addition to my treasure chest for Feed-In-Tariff, a web site that contains worldwide updates on Solar Feed-In-Tariffs (below, its screenshot): http://www.solarfeedintariff.net

With the dramatic decrease in cost of solar modules/panels and various natural disasters in recent years, even without any subsidies, there are plenty of reasons to utilize solar energy. But if FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) were implemented, this policy would provide greater incentive for people, in general, to remain connected to the grid and increase the chance of greater economic stability for our society. Since there are varied circumstances from state to state, I would like to implore all state legislative bodies to seriously consider FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) for Renewable Energies within his/her particular state.

How U.S. Public Is Being Misled About Solar Energy

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(please click on red links below)

I’ve debated over and over whether or not to bother addressing this laughable report. But upon further contemplation, I believe it deserves at least a mention because it helps us to realize part of a very serious problem here in U.S.  The link at the end of this paragraph is an interview  from Fox News. The Fox reporter tells the U.S. public (during a talk show) that solar energy maybe a success story in Germany, but cannot be successfully implemented in U.S. because Germany is a small country and have more sun. This could not be further from the truth! Germany receives less sunlight than Anchorage, Alaska of  U.S. !  This Fox reporter also named a list of 1% of solar companies that had failed, without mentioning the other 99% of solar companies that had succeeded.   If this Fox reporter has done more home work, she would have discovered that the real reason why solar energy has been such a success story in Germany  is due to a successfully implemented incentive policy, Feed-In-Tariff, which I have in the past and will also cover again in a future post.  The type of biased reporting by Fox is extremely misleading.  In case any one among our visitors/viewers/readers wants evidential support, here is the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Solar Resource map comparison (provided by NREL, National Renewable Energy Lab) of the U.S., Germany, Spain,  Alaska (USA), Mainland (USA), and Hawaii (USA). Here, at Sun Is The Future, though a small organization, we routinely check with multiple sources before publishing any of the posts.  This (video of the misleading Fox report) is the reason that Sun Is The Future exists, to correct or supplement what’s been wrongfully or biasedly presented by our network media.  We may be small, but we do our home work and we remain faithful to the truth.

More truths will come forth in future posts.
