Romania’s electricity production exceeded 9,000 MW this morning, with the majority coming from wind turbines around 10:00 AM.

These turbines contribute over 2,460 MW, especially considering that the entire eastern part of the country is under a yellow code for strong winds, snow, and blizzards. In total, Romania has installed wind turbines with a capacity of 3,000 MW.
