German Proposal to Cut Solar Target Would ‘Starve’ Industry

A German plan backed by Economy Minister Philipp Roesler to reduce solar power installations in the world’s biggest market to 1 gigawatt a year would “starve” the renewable industry, an opposition lawmaker said.

“It would push the solar industry out of Germany,” Hans-Josef Fell, a Green Party lawmaker who helped invent the country’s solar subsidy system, said today in Berlin.
