I would be very grateful if someone could check through this translation from English to French.

English original: For the second time since the beginning of the year, the French government has reduced the money which it gives for buying photovoltaic solar energy. For a number of years many French people have sold the energy which they have produced to EDF. The money which they receive will not be reduced but owners of solar energy farms, which are often very large, will earn less. As a result, these energy factories could become less important, although they cause no pollution.

Nevertheless, as these panels become less and less expensive, we will see more of them in our towns and villages.

My translation (not using accents because if I try to copy them in it misses a line):

Pour la deuxieme fois depuis le debut de l'annee, le gouvernement francais a reduit l'argent qu'il donne pour acheter l'energie solaire photovoltaique. Pendant des annees beaucoup de francais ont vendu l'energie qu'ils ont produit a EDF. L'argent qu'ils recoivent ne reduira pas mais les proprietaries des parcs solaires, qui sont souvent grands, gagneront moins. Par resultat, ces usines energetiques pourraient devenir moins importants, bien qu'ils ne provoquent pas aucune pollution.

Neanmoins quand ces panneaux deviennent de moins en moins chers, nous en verrons plus dans nos villes et villages.

Thanks anyone willing to help!

2nd to last line, I think it should be "moins importantes" as une usine is feminine?
otherwise I'm not sure; it seems alright to me but you should probably get a 2nd opinion
