SOT, Elias Issa, Board of Directors of the Deutsche Eco (in English): "An installation like that will probably produce roughly 50 million kw/hours on a yearly basis, so this is kind of a huge installation. If you compare it to for example, a nuclear power, a nuclear-fired power plant it will be roughtly 5 to 6 percent of the capacity of a nuclear fired power plant."

SCRIPT

Deutsche Eco's solar power plant in Koethen is one of the largest in the world, and has helped Germany achieve record-breaking solar energy production.

Germany can now produce up to half of its electricity needs from solar power, putting it in first place globally.

On June 9, for the first time ever, Germany produced over 50 percent of its electrical power using solar panels. This was due in large part to high levels of sunlight but also to the country's highly developed solar-energy infrastructure.
