“Tariffs for photovoltaic installations will not be lowered”

Federal Network Agency

The feed-in tariffs for new photovoltaic (PV) installations will not be lowered between 1 July and 30 September 2016 for the fourth time in a row. This is because newly installed capacity of 1,366 megawatts (MW) over the past 12 months was more than 1,000 MW below the target corridor of 2.4-2.6 gigawatt (GW) as determined by the Renewable Energy Act (EEG), the Federal Network Agency wrote in a press release. The feed-in tariffs were last lowered in June 2015.
