The German PV market keeps being driven by the segments for installations not exceeding 750 kW in size, which last month achieved a newly-installed PV capacity of 344 MW. Of this capacity, around 320 MW comes from rooftop PV arrays while the remaining share is represented by small-sized solar parks.

As a result of this strong development, the FITs for PV systems with a capacity of up to 10 kW will drop under the €0.10/kWh threshold for the first time, with all tariffs dropping by 1.8% during the period from November to January. Depending on the size of the system, they will range from €0.0832 to €0.0651/kWh.
