German Solar Installs Almost Double Last Year’s, Regulator Says

Germany installed about 650 megawatts of solar panels in the first two months of the year, almost double the amount compared with the same period of 2011, the Bundesnetzagentur grid regulator said in a website statement.

Installations rose to about 450 megawatts in January and about 200 megawatts in February, the regulator said. Germany, the world’s second-biggest solar market last year, added about 266 megawatts and 100 megawatts in the same period of 2011.
