"The dream of supplying Germany with mainly green energy from sunshine and wind turns out to be nothing but a fading illusion. Solar and wind power today covers only 27% of electricity consumption and only 5% of Germany's total energy needs, while impairing reliability and raising electricity prices to among the highest in the world."

That's another Koch family creation?
Germany has reported that on a good day,their renewables have carried 75% of the total national electrical load.
With more and more European/African grid-inter-ties it will only get better.
The foreign nation who operates Germany's coal-fired power plants hopes to dump them on the market,and expand offshore wind with the proceeds.
