Germany saves more on Solar Energy with their residential solar systems
According to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, it costs about 62 cents a watt to build residential solar systems in Germany. In the U.S. that figure is $3.32 a watt, which is more than five times greater. SunPower Corp tells us the reason for this is installation time and more permitting requirements.
Germany has about 32 gigawatts of installed solar capacity, more than any other country. Over the past two years, Germany installed 3.6 times more solar capacity than the United States. On a per capita basis, that’s 14x more solar capacity! The US solar community hopes to catch up with Germany.
