Why Grey Skies Are Good News For Solar Power

Which country is the biggest user of solar power? If you’re thinking it would have to be the sunny climes of California, Australia or Dubai, think again. For surprisingly, the grey skies of Germany take the #1 spot, streets ahead of Italy and Belgium. 

In fact, Germany just broke its own monthly record for solar power generation, logging an incredible 5.1 terawatt hours of electricity from solar power, putting them head and shoulders above the rest of the world in solar energy usage.

With approximately 400MW of solar power capacity per million people (compared to Italy’s 267MW per million people), the grey skies of Germany are looking considerably brighter.

This latest study is great news for the rest of the world, providing unquestionable evidence that a lack of sunshine is no obstacle to the production of solar energy.

And with Germany on track to receiving 80% of its power from renewable sources by 2050, here’s hoping the rest of the world will sit up and take notice.

Especially right here in Sunny Australia!
