Renewable energy PV and Feed In Tarrifs

With the COOP in the Supermarket forefront of investigating the benefits of renewable energy I am interested in seeing what is going on and how it can help with electricity generation. I an no scientist and dont begin to understand solar panels, but I do know that bright sunny days and solar panels produce electricity cheaply and that FIT or feed in tarrifs are a way to pay you for the energy you produce. There are plenty of firms out there with the imformation on how to instal PV panels and get cheaper power and maybe even earn a few bob for any excess power you produce. I cannot understand why more is not done by the power industry to promote these schemes and why the government is content to build more and more power stations when each and every home shop or supermarket could be producing electricity to power the nation. But then I thick and dont understand how solar power works, but I can see the figures stack up.

I copied the below list from  www.ofgem.gov.uk/ 
I  hope the UK can find a way of producing elecricity that is less ugly than wind turbines dotted around the country. The electricity industry will pay thousands to site a turbine on your land but seem less enthusiastic about what they term as small scale schemes and anyone such as a facory unit or a supermarket who could produce larger amount are not eligable for Feed In Tarrifs ...............is it me or is that just plain stupidity?
