What is the current status of photovoltaics in Germany? This is an
interesting question, and one to which you will receive a clear answer on
this website based on daily updated information. Here, you can view at any
time the total output of all PV plants in Germany installed up to the
specified cutoff date. As required, you can view this information as an
absolute value or as a percentage of total installed output.
Now you can look at individual regions as the data is additionally
classified according to the respective zip code areas. Here, you can take a
closer look at the regional relative power in the respective areas, or in
other words, the current performance of the PV plants in proportion to the
nominal power of these plants.
The animated graphics demonstrate the role already played by photovoltaics
in generating electricity in Germany today, and show that PV systems also
contribute to reducing the high cost of midday peak demand. <end quote>

Definitely something to be trumpeted.
The German solar plants exceeded the output of twenty 1 MWe nuclear reactors
for just over 4 hours.
This compares to the US nuclear industry's accomplishment of 37 straight
years of exceeding the output of twenty 1 MWe reactors. Usually, exceeding
it by a significant factor.
The accomplishment is noteworthy but requires perspective. It will require
tremendous storage to reach 24 hours.
