Softbank’s Son Supports Lower Premium Tariffs for Solar Energy

Softbank Corp., a mobile-phone provider that’s also developing solar-power stations, would support lower premium payments for solar energy as installation costs drop, according to the company’s president.

“Procurement costs for solar plants are falling,” Masayoshi Son said today at a press conference in Tokyo. “It is fair and appropriate for the tariff to be reduced accordingly.”
