The article reports that the Renewable Energy Association (REA) of Great Britain released a warning to potential investors about the implications of the government's stance over the boom in large-scale groundmounted photovoltaic (PV) installations in fields. According to Greg Barker, energy and climate change minister, the British government adopted a system that did not recognize industrial-scale, stand-alone, greenfield solar. He thinks that large field-based developments must not be allowed to affect the funding for roof-based PV.
