German solar firms want protectionism -- finally

I suppose this was only a matter of time: a number of German manufacturers are now calling for a "Buy European" stipulation for renewables subsidies. As I have written here before, Canada, the US, China, and other countries all have such stipulations for domestic manufacturing already, but Germany never has. It now seems that German firms want a level playing field, and the only way to do that is violate international trade rules like everyone else.
