From pv magazine Germany
Germany’s Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) has reported that 350.4 MW of new PV capacity was installed in the country in December.
By comparison, newly installed PV capacity hit 421 MW in December 2021, and 675 MW in November 2022. In 2022, new PV additions reached 7.19 GW, which compares to 5.26 GW in 2021, 3.94 GW in 2019, 2.96 GW in 2018, and 1.75 GW in 2017.
The Bundesnetzagentur said that around 872 MW of the new additions were unsubsidized PV installations built outside German government incentive schemes. Another 2.42 GW was deployed under the nation's tender scheme for utility-scale projects.
Germany's cumulative solar capacity surpassed 66.5 GW at the end of December.

Should point out that Germany has abolished VAT on domestic solar installs from 1 January 2023.
A consequence of that was a fall off in December 2022: 350MW down from 421MW in December 2021, as installs were pushed back to January 2023.
