German solar power business "back on a growth track"

German Solar Industry Association

Germany’s solar market is back on a growth track, with new solar PV installations accounting for a total capacity of 900 megawatts in the first half of 2017, writes the German Solar Industry Association (BSW) in a press release. This was an increase of 75 percent compared to the first half of 2016. Decreasing acquisition costs had prompted especially small and medium-sized companies as well as homeowners to install PV facilities, writes BSW.
