Romanian Senate plenum approved and voted today the EGO 88/2011

Romanian Senate plenum approved and voted today the EGO 88/2011 with 75 votes pro and 31 against. You can read more about the document here.

The Ordinance contains two of the main amendments proposed by RWEA (Romanian Wind Energy Association):
-predictability of the support scheme (no change will occur before January 2014)
-no retroactive measures for the EU and environmental grants beneficiaries (the applicants who already benefit from grants can continue receiving one GC/MWh for 15 years) or they can be accredited on the reduction formula proposed by ANRE.

THESE MEASURES WILL NOT BE APPLIED BEFORE THE DEPUTIES CHAMBER DEBATES AND VOTES THE EGO.

Meanwhile, the EGO will be applied as it was signed by the Government. It is estimated that the Deputies Chamber will start debating it in February 2012.
