Solar Power – Subsidies
In a recent news article on Reuters, Germany has announced that almost half of its electrical power on the grid originates from solar power. An estimated 22 gigawatts of electrical power is produced per hour, by solar panels in Germany, the equivalent of 22 nuclear power stations. In Germany, the government is in full support of green energy production with heavy subsidies, which is quite different in the US.
Here is an interesting infographic from 1bog.org , comparing the two countries energy production and subsequent subsidies for solar power. It’s an interesting look at the potential that could be there is government is willing to step in with heavy subsidies for solar. With the huge solar potential in the US, focus and subsidies could result in a dynamic shift on dependencies and on the economics of energy in this country.
