German Adds 313 MW Of Solar Energy In July


Germany  added to its solar capacity in July.

According to PV Magazine, 313 MW was added in July. This year alone  2,110 MW of new solar capacity have gone up in the European country.

Since 2009, 34.5 GW of PV energy has been installed, ranking as one of the global leaders in solar power. Its been another good year so far for the solar giants as wel. We reported in July that Germany broke a power output record with 23.9 GW, which previously stood at 22.68 GW in April.

So why does Germany continue to lead the way?

One reason is its feed-in tariffs (FIT’s). This policy has provided strong support for the German solar market. In fact John Farrell noted back in 2011 that most solar projects use feed in tariffs. Farrell goes further on to explain why they are successful, not just in Germany, but also other areas in the world:

The basic premise of the feed-in tariff is that the electric utility must connect any wind turbine or solar panel (or other generator) to the grid and buy all the electricity via a long-term contract with a public price.  It’s use in Germany and its simplicity have led to mass local ownership of renewable energy in that country.

In the U.S., the policy is spreading, having been adopted by multiple municipal utilities in Florida, Indiana, and California as well as states including Rhode Island, Hawaii, and Vermont.

Now, if only more jurisdictions in North America would adopt solar FIT’s, the world would be a much more sunnier place.
