Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Because it puts the tarrif for solar in perspective.

On a graph not showing the solar feed-in tariff but showing the solar module price index?... In addition, to repeat this to you yet again, there is not much perspective to be given by comparing feed-in tariffs for different technologies. All aim to give new technologies the chance to bring down prices by technological development and the realisation economies of scale on a stable sub-market. And you can cry insane all you want, but show me another technology that brought down prices 58% in five and a half years, with feed-in laws or without.

In the meantime, I prepared a first graph showing a comparison that may make sense, one between the feed-in rate and the module price index, this time showing the Y axis starting at zero:

However, I think a log graph makes more sense than one with the Y axis starting at zero:

*Lunatic*, n.
