Sete Lagoas

The choice of this city as the site of the Project was due to its already having appropriate energy and telecommunication systems for the tests, a diversified market, and both a population and a consumer base large enough  to represent CEMIG’s market adequately. The presence of CEMIG’s corporate university – UniverCEMIG, which has a model grid and labs ideal for carrying out the tests and personnel training was another deciding factor when deciding on the most appropriate region for conducting the pilot project.

The first steps in the implementation of the pilot project will be marked by the modernization of the measurement systems, consisting of, besides the meters, telecommunication systems that allow data exchange between on site equipment and the computer systems at CEMIG. With the new equipment, issuance and collection of data, such as energy consumption, and alarms that indicate, among other problems, power outages will be tested.
