What is Solar Doing to Electric Cost in Germany --- Driving it WAY DOWN



Good information from Bob Wallace

High quality source and fairly current....



This one is interesting because it shows the wholesale price of electricity falling below the production price of coal and nuclear.  By August 2015 the price was down to 30 EU/MHw (top graph).




And this graph give some insight into why.  The top set of lines is from a day before there was much solar installed in German and the bottom set on a sunny day after a moderate amount was installed.  The effect of just a little solar is to knock out all the more expensive providers during the sunny hours and lower the wholesale price of electricity to that of late night (low demand) hours.

Hope this is what you're looking for.  If not, let me know and I'll see what else I have squirreled away.

  1. According to statistics, we consume more energy year-by-year. It's because of increasing need for new technology implementation. Since we stepped into a new era of cloud computing, a lot of data centers had been built by virtual data room providers in order to provide their services.
