With the development of business and changes in lifestyles, the electricity demand of merchants and residents has greatly increased. In order to optimize the power supply in the old districts and to meet the increasing demand for electricity in the future, CEM and the Macau SAR Government have selected nine locations in Macau, Taipa and Coloane respectively to build additional customer substations. The projects will be carried out from July this year to early next year. Locations include Beco dos Faitiões, Largo do Aquino, a plot of land near no.14 Travessa do Cais, no.3 Travessa dos Mercadores, junction of Rua da Tercena and Travessa do Armazém Velho, Rua de Entre-Campos, Beco da Rosa, a plot of land opposite to no.35 Rua Correia da Silva in Taipa and the pedestrian area near Rua do Tassara in Coloane.
To let the public and relevant parties understand the new customer substation projects, buildings’ communal electrical installation upgrades and application process for increasing subscribed demand, CEM jointly organized seminars on “CEM’s power distribution projects to improve power supply in old districts” with General Residents Association of Macau, District Development Promotion Association, Association of Property Agents and Realty Developers of Macau, Macau Trade and Land Development Association, Macau General Association of Real Estate and Property Management Business Association Macao from June to July. Representatives attended the seminars include Leong Hong Sai, Vice Director of General Residents Association of Macau; Chan Chi Seng, President of Association of Residents of Taipa and other heads of district associations of General Residents Association of Macau; Chan Tak Seng, President of District Development Promotion Association; Ung Choi Kun and Kuan Vai Lam, President and President of the Board of Directors of Association of Property Agents and Realty Developers of Macau; Lok Wai Tak, President of Macau Trade and Land Development Association; U Chong In, Vice President of Macau General Association of Real Estate and Jackey Chui, President of Property Management Business Association of Macao, among others.
In addition, CEM has also sent letters to notify the residents and merchants in the project areas earlier that if power increase is required, they can apply for increase of subscribed demand to CEM through CEM eService Portal, eService app, CEM WeChat, Info Line (2833 9911) and Customer Service Centres on or before 31 July, 2020. Thus the network change projects related to customers’ power increase applications can be integrated into the overall plan. Any applications made after the deadline may result in an extended processing time due to repeated road excavation. Property owners should be aware that the application for increase of subscribed demand will involve the connection fee, and customer’s project may require repair or upgrade project due to aging of communal electrical installations in the building.
