    Being from Germany, when talking about my country's advance in photovoltaics, I always have to contend with the question, "but isn't the government subsidizing solar power?! It's amazing how well-kept of a secret it is that all the dirty energies are currently so heavily subsidized. It's almost like people can't believe it just because it's so outrageous. We really have to educate the public in countries around the world about this, and your post is a great contribution to that.

The aim is to meet Germany’s renewable energy goals of 12.5% of electricity consumption in 2010 and 20% in 2020.Photo by Sven Eberlein
