This article really made me think. Too much of that said within I can relate to. Our world is desperately in need of fresh clean energy resources – so the thought that vested interests for short term financial gain are suppressing good ideas – to my mind is out rate treachery to the human race.

A Feed-in Tariff (FIT) is a fixed rate (tariff) that is paid to renewable energy producers for each unit of electricity sent to the grid.
