From I fucking love science:
Congratulations to Germany for breaking their own record last month in harnessing solar energy!
By the end of 2012, Germany was ranked #1 for solar energy production per capita at 400 MW per million people while the United States was ranked #20 with only 25 MW per million people.
The United States is expected to double their usage of solar power by the end of 2015….
