Germany Gives Residents The Chance To Add Solar Power To Rented Homes

By

There’s many benefits of owning a house instead of renting. Not only is there the ability to manipulate the structure and change what’s inside, but it also increases in value over time. Being able to install solar panels on the roof is something that could be difficult for renters, but for a place like Germany, that’s been changed with a new law potentially passing.

Nearly half of Germany’s population is renting their property. It’s an issue that will hinder their goal of installing 66 gigawatts worth of solar photovoltaic cells throughout the country by 2030. Over 40 gigawatts have been reportedly installed near the end of 2016. Only China and Japan sit above them, and they’re just above the United States. All four of these countries account for nearly two-thirds of the world’s installed solar capacity.
