Market prices – does that mean they will also NOT receive the feed-in-tariffs? I don’t believe that and if they do receive them, then they get a subsidy. As long as they are not on the same playing field as other power producers, they are subsidized.
Private firm Anesco is building a hybrid solar and battery facility in Milton Keynes in England with its own capital, using no govenment subsidy. It’s just one of about 15 photovoltaic projects under way from the UK to Italy that aren’t relying on subsidies to make a profit.
