One in 10 People in Germany Producing Solar Power, Lobby Says

June 19, 2013

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.
