The Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG) project involves the implementation of information technology infrastructure to manage new automated or remotely controlled equipment deployed in the electric distribution system. This project aims to reduce operating and maintenance costs, while improving the reliability of the transmission and distribution assets owned and operated by MEAG. The communication systems and automation equipment being deployed within MEAG’s distribution substations reduce the frequency of system failures and associated maintenance activities. Furthermore, the new information technology infrastructure established as a result of this project supports future deployments of distribution automation and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) by municipal utilities served by MEAG. This project also implements remotely controlled motor operators to operate transmission switches, which reduces operations cost and improves outage response time.
