Right, the latitude of Germany is similar to the middle of Canada, so they get more sun in the winter than in Alaska, but overall they average about the same as Alaska or the very least sunny part of far northwest Washington state.

It may be that they are using individual micro inverters on this system, just like on most home systems are now. That means the only DC is the pigtail from the panel to the inverter mounted right underneath them.
