The Administration of the Environmental Fund (AFM) announced the launch of the prosumers’ small solar projects financing program Casa Verde (Green House) starting with May 19, according to a statement.
Thus, “the financing session for the enrollment of natural person applicants in the Program regarding the installation of photovoltaic panel systems for the production of electricity, in order to cover the consumption needs and deliver the surplus to the national network,” will begin on May 19, 2023 and will close on June 26, 2023, AFM announced.
“Considering the importance of the program from the point of view of environmental protection policies and the major interest shown by citizens, the Administration of the Environment Fund has made every effort to simplify the access of natural persons to the Program, by developing a new IT application. This year, natural persons will register themselves in the program through the computer application, according to the calendar published on the institution’s website, being allocated three working days for each region, to prevent a blockage due to overloading of the computer application. We want the program to be a real success and to be able to support around 87,500 households in their effort to reduce their energy bill costs, in addition to the 55,000 systems approved in the two funding sessions organized so far,” said the president of AFM, Laurentiu-Adrian Neculaescu.
The financing is granted in the amount of a maximum of 20,000 lei, under the condition of a personal contribution of the beneficiary of 2,000 lei. The amount financed by AFM is deducted by the validated installer from the total amount of the invoice, and the difference up to the total amount of the invoice is borne by the beneficiary from own financial sources.
