Solar PV + Storage Likely = Retail Electricity In Germany This Year
August 11th, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
One of my Facebook friends, a CleanTechnica reader, recently shared the following graph with me. The key point it shows is that solar PV + storage is cost-competitive with electricity from the grid starting in quarter 4 of this year in Germany. Things are getting serious! If German utilities thought they had a problem before, the situation is about to get tougher.
The projection is apparently based on 2013, so I’m not sure if it is 100% accurate, but it shouldn’t be too off (if it is off at all).
