Photovoltaic energy in Romania rural areas
Well-exposed to the sun rays, the rural communities situated in the hill and field areas of Romania can use this renewable energy source for the benefit of the community.
Although photovoltaic fields have been developed in Romania during the last few years, they send the energy produced to the national grid, and the neighbouring communities, whose land has been bought or rented, get no advantage out of them.
How do they manage it?
