Snow in Germany Cuts Solar Power Output, Meteogroup Says

Snowfall in Germany is reducing solar output as covered panels can’t generate power at a time when below-freezing temperatures are boosting demand for heating.

There may be peaks of 6 to 8 gigawatts of solar from today through to Dec. 8 before more cloud and snow on Dec. 10 cuts output below 4 gigawatts, according to Meteogroup U.K. Ltd.
