435 MW Of German Solar Installed In November 2012

January 3rd, 2013 by  

Germany continued on a persistent, assertive path of renewable energy development  in November, installing a very large amount of solar — 435 MW — despite being located in a region that is not the best for that kind of power. Even so, it is the top solar nation in the world by far.

For comparison, in August, Germany installed about 320 MW of solar capacity; nearly 1000 MW in September; and approximately 612 MW in October. For a bit more comparison, the US installed about 684 MW of PV solar in the whole third quarter of 2012, despite have better solar irradiation and three times as many citizens.

Some of the countries with the best solar potential are located in the Middle
East, and yet they are nowhere near Germany in terms of investment and installations.
