The current market situation, at least for Central Europe, can be summarized as follows: same old story. The price level has neither changed over the past month nor has the general availability of the different module types improved – on the contrary.
Whereas last month it was still possible to order relatively reliable multicrystalline modules for short-term delivery from many suppliers, as early as the beginning of March, even for ‘mainstream’ modules, buyers were put off until April, May, or even June. This is unfortunate for those in Germany who have to connect to the grid by the end of the month to qualify for the current FIT. Starting in April, rooftop systems between 40 and 750 kW covered by the German EEG will be remunerated at just €0.089/kWh – not, as previously threatened, the same rate as ground-mounted systems, but not much higher.
