If you read Germany's electric meter on that day,they'd be billing you for X-amount of kWh.
On that same day,if you'd read their 'sunny boy',grid-tie interface,the portion satisfied by renewable energy-related production wheeled onto the grid equaled 0.75X.
I'm just reporting on what was observed.
It's up to the reader on how they interpret the data.
If I tell you that I can satisfy 75% of your hunger with pizza,instead of fried chicken,I suppose you can argue the satiation coefficient of pizza vs fried chicken if you want.Calories are calories,and kWhs are kWhs.
On a case-specific basis,75% is remarkably larger than 4%.
