The 2008 Budget Law included new measures relating to the production of electricity from renewable energy sources. In particular, it introduced the possibility for small renewable plants (< 1 MW or < 200 kW for wind plants) commissioned after 1 January 2008 to choose between Green Certificates and a feed in tariff mechanism (called "all inclusive tariff") for an incentive period of 15 years. Both Green Certificate and All Inclusive Tariff are differentiated by source. The values for the feed-in tariff, as amended by the Law No.99/2009, are as follows: - EUR cents 20/kWh for geothermal plants - EUR cents 34/kWh for tidal and wave - EUR cents 22/kWh for hydroelectric - EUR cents 28/kWh for biomass biogases and bioliquids (vegetal oil) when complying with EU Regulation 73/2009 - EUR cents 18/kWh for landfill gas, sewage treatment plant gas, biogases and bioliquids - EUR cents 30/kWh for wind plants (up to 200 kW).
