Munich, March 08, 2012 – Newly installed photovoltaic capacity reached all-time record levels in 2011, and PV plants with an output of over 200 kilowatt peak (kWp) occupy a rapidly growing share of the market. Europe holds the number one spot for plants of this size, though other markets are hot on its tail: New large-scale projects are currently being planned in the U.S. and Canada that are set to test the bounds of what is technically feasible. The main factor driving this development is that of cost, as it generally follows that the larger a plant is, the lower the costs are per kilowatt of rated capacity.
