About one in 10 people living in Germany are producing solar power, the German Solar Industry Association said.
A total of 8.5 million people live in buildings that use solar systems to generate electricity or heat, the group said today in an e-mailed statement, citing figures it compiled.
The units will prevent the production of about 24 million metric tons of carbon-dioxide emissions this year, it said.
