Almost 5 GW by August – Record Figures for Newly Installed Photovoltaic Systems

The Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) released record figures for newly installed photovoltaic systems in 2010. With a capacity of close to 5 GWp of new PV systems already installed between January and August, 2010 will see a massive increase in German solar generation capacity.Between 1 January and 30 June 2010, 3,853 MWp were installed.  This is already more than the record figure of 2009 when 3,804 MWp were installed in total.

Between 1 July and 31 August, another 1,030 MWp were installed. Therefore, between January and August of 2010, a record total of 4,883 MWp were installed.

In light of the fact that the next reduction of solar feed-in tariffs only became effective on 1 October, figures for September 2010 will surely reveal another record month.
