How does solar energy win the solar war

The solar industry has grown in China, while in the United States, it has been a "neglected car". Why do the same things get the opposite treatment in both countries? 

The other day, I visited a solar battery factory in China. Although local workers are not paid well, this does not mean their factories are poorly constructed or leaking roofs. Instead, these factories are the most modern and productive factories I've ever seen. A large part of their management has been trained in North America and is talented enough to help its own factories compete globally and stay ahead. 

With China, let's look at Germany's efforts in the solar industry. It is far-fetched to say that Germany is a resource-rich country, but it has more solar panels installed than any other country. The reason germans are so keen on solar is that for every 1 degree of solar power sold to the grid, families receive a hefty 75 cents in subsidies. Spain has a similar stimulus. In addition, the UK, France and Canada have also recently raised the price subsidy for the Internet to make it more competitive. 

In contrast, the uproar over the recent price subsidy of 32 cents on the Internet in gainesville, Florida, was inexplicable. The reason is that the us is too low on feed-in tariffs. In California, for example, feed-in tariffs are as low as 10 cents, which is higher than in most of the cities in the us with feed-in tariffs. In addition to the limit, lower feed-in tariff, the United States has also issued relevant laws and regulations, for every family to sell into the grid solar cap, this is definitely icing on the cake for development of solar energy. 

Many of the solar policies advertised in American newspapers today were made by Germany, Japan and Spain 10 years ago, while China and France were already established five years ago. Although we are catching up now, we have not taken the measures that our competitors have become accustomed to. If feed-in tariffs are allowed to rise, we might see a "explosion" of demand for renewable energy. At the same time, higher renewable energy prices will also reduce our dependence on foreign energy and stimulate the development of domestic renewable energy markets.
