ICLEI Case Study 115 Energy Company of Minas Gerais delivers Electricity to a low-income Community, with the support of CRER-Betim
Parque do Cedro, a borough in Betim-MG was not a recipient of a registered or formal electricity supply.
This changed with the support of CEMIG (Energy Company of Minas Gerais), which was motivated
by the municipality’s Renewable Energies Reference Center (CRER). The installation of energy went
hand-in-hand with essential environmental education, with the objective of raising awareness of the
community’s consumption and energy efficiency within the borough.
