The revenue of 850 lei/ member of family for heating subsidies is just approximated based on preliminary data but the exact sum will be set by the end of summer, Interim Labour minister Emil Boc said quoted by Mediafax.

He said that the elimination of heating subsidies will impose a state aid only for families that need it while those who earn more will be compelled to support on their own the higher bills for heating, Boc said.

Currently the government covers up to 45% of the fuel used by the thermal energy producers and the invoice price differs from one city to another based on the reference price set by the local council and by the subsidy offered by each city hall.
