Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I cannot comment on the feed-in law, as I did not follow the issue. Generally, I am a bit skeptical of whatever METI (which oversees Tepco) does. It will create a short-term investment boom in solar energy which will quickly become obsolete and could be abandoned as enormous industrial garbage.

Not directly related, the ruling coalition and the opposition unanimously passed an amendment to the nulcear power law which claims one of the objectives of the nuclear energy is "national security." The right-wing LDP inserted the phrase at the last minute, and the increasingly impotent and right-leaning DPJ (think of Greece's PASOK) accepted it.

I will become a patissier, God willing.
