Germany Added 1.8 GW of PV in June, More Than 4 GW in 2012
Almost 4.4 gigawatts (4,373.5 megawatts) of photovoltaic capacity were installed in Germany in the first half of 2012.
Mind boggling numbers!
They clearly demonstrate what is possible if there's a political will, with vision and a helping hand for starters: A generous FiT that's tailored down to wean the industry off from subsidies over time. Mission accomplished? Not yet, but it looks very well on track!
Small editorial note: The article quotes "14.7 kilowatt-hours generated by 1.2 million PV systems", that should read "14.7 billion kilowatt-hours generated by 1.2 million PV systems".
