The FiT is slowly though dramatically (for participants) being replaced by bidding processes to set the rates at which electricity is sold.  Unfortunately, bidding processes are typically rife with parties that underbid, and the very process of underbidding (even the awareness of the possibility of it) tends to influence all parties in the exercise. The term for the effect of observers on a process is the observer effect, that is, participants in a process who are aware of being watched tend to adjust their behavior accordingly.  As a result of this psychological phenomenon, bids on solar projects are quite low, particularly in markets such as India.  As these low bids are seen as reflective of the true cost of installation (including labor), the process tends to hold margins for all participants hostage to expectations of ever lower bids.  The price paid for tight margins may well be the quality control function at all points along the value chain and ironically, this may lead to less productive (in terms of kilowatts out) installations.
