Germany’s Parliament has consented to raise the rate of photovoltaic installations per year in 2010 to 2,500 MW – 3,500 MW from 1,100 MW – 1,700 MW per year and also abolish the tariff for ground mounted systems on crop land.

The rooftops solar systems continue to dominate the German market, with over four-fifths of the 9,000 MW of photovoltaic. Tariffs for rooftop systems are expected to be reduced by between 10% and 16%, likely to take effect July 1st if revisions accepted by parliament. The scheme of more installations above the maximum target, greater the degression rate will be kept. As for the tariffs regarding wind, biogas and others, they will be the same.
