it seems the government at last is realising that some of these feed in tariffs are making people rich but not contributing to the power generation for the country.

I don't know much about the science involved in solar, but I think it could be used better. I live in a rural area where there are thousands of fields with disused farm buildings with long roofs everywhere. If the national electricity company offered free solar panels to the farmers/landowners, the potential for mini solar generating stations is huge. I'd certainly be the first to sign up. In fact there was a similar scheme for homeowners in the UK, but I can't see that being worthwhile; we've seen the problems with using ordinary homes.

I contacted our 'green' electricity suppliers here, Airtricity, suggesting this, and they came back to me saying they were interested, but because the ESB had control of the national grid they couldn't do it. So it could work.

they do and that is why the taxpayer here is being ripped off.

not disimilar to those fields in Spain.
However, pls consider the transmission losses and the very fact that many of these places won't be on the grid.
However, it's not a daft idea and could be worthwhile.
