Germany’s cumulative PV capacity reached 68.2 GW at the end of January.
Germany’s Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) has reported that 780 MW of new solar capacity was installed in January, out of the 420 MW of solar installed in January 2022.
The main market player is still 300 kW solar power systems, which are supported by the country’s feed-in tariff system (FIT). Developers installed about 526.5 MW of such systems last year.
The country’s cumulative solar power capacity reached 68.2 GW at the end of January, a total of 2.7 million projects. Bavaria is the German state with the largest share of total capacity at 18.8 GW, followed by Baden-Württemberg with 8.37 GW and North Rhine-Westphalia with around 7.7 GW.
The feed-in tariff levels are no longer adjusted according to the volumes of the previous months. They will remain unchanged until the end of January 2024. They vary between €0.0620 (€0.0658)/kWh and €0.1340/kWh depending on the size of the system.
