Abstract: This paper investigates local residents’ expectations of the Chinese government subsidies on solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation. Residents’ demographics including age, educational attainment, income level, gender, and employment fields are analyzed based on a survey study in Wuhan, China. Results of the regression analysis on the influence of demographic variables on residents’ expectations indicate that: (1) residents with different demographics have significantly different expectations of the Chinese government subsidies for adopting PV power generation facilities; (2) income, education attainment, and residents’ employment fields have a significant impact on their expectations of government subsidies. With these findings, this paper concludes with useful policy implications.
