Now, few. What happened? Were the old ones quite poor? Was there a tax-benefit that was cut? There’s a story in that.

Again, one of the most authoritarian governments on Earth fails its people miserbly. Rather than just giving people a credit if the choose to add solar, why not just mandate that all new residential and commercial construction include solar panels? As expensive as Japanese housing is already, 500,000 yen is pretty insignificant.

After Fukushima incident people need more options and I`m glad to hear solar equipment prices are coming down. Could you write more about this subject as it`s really interesting?

Thanks,
