Solar power plants in Germany produced a record 22 gigawatts of electricity per hour on Saturday, according to Reuters. This was enough to meet 50% of the country's electric power needs for the day.

The German government decided to shut down all nuclear power plants by 2022, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Those plants will be replaced by renewable energy sources including wind and solar.
