Even the biggest success Starts with a first step

About State Grid Brazil Holding

State Grid chose Brazil to carry out its first major investment in a non-Asian country. Brazil is also China’s top trade partner in South America and one of the most attractive economies to receive foreign resources in the world. In December 2010, State Grid Brazil Holding purchased seven national companies of energy transmission, at a cost of US$ 989 million. State Grid’s reliable, cheap, clean and sustainable model already benefits some of Brazil’s largest cities. Almost 6,000 kilometers of transmission lines will be operated by the State Grid in southeastern Brazil through the company’s 30 year-concession. Covering Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and other large areas near the loading centers, SGID is the fifth largest energy transmission company in Brazil.
