german-solar-graphiceditors-blog-entry3There’s not much more to add to this ‘infographic’ that came across my Facebook newsfeed recently: Germany, with a national feed-in tariff tilted toward individual solar installations, is leaps and bounds ahead of the U.S on solar.

And, as this infographic notes — and, as I, myself, have noted in previous blog entries, there’s plenty of irony in this fact.

After all, the U.S. likes to cast itself as the world leader in free-market-ism and the biggest champion of the small (business) guy. But when it comes to electricity production, we’re all about helping the big guys and utility monopolies, or just the opposite of what’s going on in “socialist” Germany.

Go figure…
