Electric sun

Germany is moving away from nuclear power to greener forms of energy. I think part of the reason is that the country is trying to show that it is possible for a strong industrial nation to survive without nuclear energy.

Wind turbines and solar panels are reasonably common here as a result. Throughout Kaiserslautern, there are buildings with plaques that note how much energy is generated through the solar panels. I saw the panel below in the Kreissparkasse.
