Even in the sunniests countries PV investment seems unable to take off.

This study provides a detailed exploration of the events leading up to, during and after the notorious Spanish solar PV
bubble—when a sudden and unexpected burst of investment in solar PV led to skyrocketing policy costs, and ultimately
resulted in the government taking retroactive measures to reduce the subsidy promised to developers.

A cautionary tale: Spanish PV Investment Bubble

Speaking of sunny countries, Poland is introducing feed-in tarifs for solar at about three times the residential price of power, and six times the usual cost of production. That should be a lot of use on smoggy winter days.

15 cents per KWh - is about in line with the UK and Germany at present.

Polish consumers pay about €0.12 plus VAT for electricity - cheaper than most of western Europe.

Interestingly the FIT is not guaranteed for a fixed period, making it rather unattractive for consumers. However given solar electricity in Poland will cost about 12-20c/KWh - not much more than retail prices - it could persuade quite a few home owners to install panels.

True it won't help much against smog, which is caused by using coal for everything, including domestic heating.
