August 31 (Renewables Now) - Germany deployed 177.37 MW of onshore wind and 470.7 MW of solar capacity in July, the Federal Network Agency said on Wednesday.
The newly installed solar capacity in July was below the level of the previous month when solar plants of about 567 MW were connected to the grid across the country.
About three-quarters of the new solar systems, or 354.66 MW, were plants built outside of the EEG scheme. Of these, only 4.96 MW were ground-mounted parks.
The expansion of onshore wind energy slowed down in July for the second month in a row and remained below 200 MW.
The solar and onshore wind installations, that came into operation in Germany between January and July, total 3.67 GW and 1.22 GW, respectively.
In the first seven months of the year, Germany's biomass power capacity grew by 16.25 MW. In July alone, new biomass power plants with a combined capacity of 4.04 MW went online.
