The program for installing photovoltaic panels by the prosumers will start after the approval of the AFM budget by the government, and now the applications are under evaluation, told energynomics.ro Andrei Iorgulescu, Director of the General Projects Directorate, Administration of the Environmental Fund (AFM).
“We start evaluating applications. Once we have the budget we will start publishing the lists with the approved ones. If we have the budget at the end of February – the beginning of March, we will start to publish then the lists with those approved, which can do the other formalities further. Until then, we are evaluating their requests so that we can prepare them for the budgeting,” said Iorgulescu. “The budget does not depend on us, it is approved by Government Decision,” said Iorgulescu.
The budget of the program for the installation of photovoltaic systems will benefit of 536 million lei, sum assured from the Regional Operational Program (POR), for the 7 development regions of Romania, except Bucharest-Ilfov (this region is not eligible through POR). This sum is added to the 120 million lei, already available in the AFM budget for the Bucharest-Ilfov region, totaling a budget of 656 million lei for the program aimed at installing photovoltaic systems for individual households, for the production of electricity and heat from 100% green sources.
