    So essentially a large German array gets EUR0.1025 per kWh delivered? That's practically what people pay for a kWh off the grid in Philadelphia.

    Amazing how far this one cloudy country's FiT program has brought the solar industry. I believe they started at something like EUR0.70 a few years back.

    Thanks for acknowledging. FIT started at 0.574 Euro per kWh back in 2004, guaranteed over 20 years. There was a 5% yearly degression for newly installed arrays. There is a big discussion under way how this system should be evolved since it seems to be overrun by its own success :smile:
    On sunny days, solar production can peak near 25GW, where all of Germany uses between 40 and 70GW most of the time. I find it very satisfying to see. Check here:
