Germany to Delay Decision on Solar Subsidy Cut, FAZ Reports

Michael Fuchs, a lawmaker from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats, called for cuts ranging from 25 to 30 percent, while Merkel’s Bavarian allies and the Liberal Democrats want the reductions to be postponed, the newspaper said.
