“German solar business climate rises most since 2010, survey says”

German Solar Industry Association (BSW) / Bloomberg

According to German Solar Industry Association BSW, the industry’s business climate has reached a seven-year high, reports Brian Parkin for Bloomberg. The association said it expects solar companies’ order books to keep growing in the coming months thanks to high-yield expectations and low interest rates. “An increasing number of consumers and companies are becoming solar self-suppliers, so-called prosumers,” association head Carsten Körnig said in a press release. Almost half of new solar arrays are now coupled with a battery storage system, according to BSW.
