The Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG) Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) project upgraded 133 of 171 substations across the territory. The effort involved implementation of substation automation equipment and integrated information technology infrastructure, as well as remotely controlled motor-operated transmission switches within 11 key substations. As a result of this project, over 75% of MEAGs distribution substations have been enhanced by SGIG improvements.
