‘Gov’t failed to provide proper incentives for solar panels’

Happy Watts – The Public Utility Authority should rethink the financial incentives to encourage private home owners to install solar panels on their roofs, ET Solar Israel representative Rafi Kirshenboim said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post last week.

The National Infrastructures Ministry and the PUA are currently in discussions this week about increasing the quota for solar panels on rooftops. The 35 MW quota for installations of 15-50 KW has been unexpectedly used up and there are reportedly another 8 MW worth of back orders waiting for authorization, which has thrown the market into chaos. It was thought there was enough space under the quota to meet demand until the end of 2010. Instead, the Israel Electric Corporation announced recently that the quota would run out by the end of 2009. via the Jerusalem Post>>
