of the Economy Ministry admit. According to the scheme, producers receive green certificates which
they sell on a specialized market, the price of one certificate being valued between 27 and 55 euro.
Investors in wind power will receive 2 certificates until 2017 and afterwards one. Photovoltaic
producers receive 6 certificates and those who produce energy from biomass receive 2 certificates,
with the exception of those from energy crops that receive 3 certificates. (www.adevarul.ro)
