Microturbine generators have shown good perspectives for small scale distributed generation. In Brazil, the Thermal Systems Study Group of Federal School of Engineering of Itajuba´, sponsored by the CEMIG (Electrical Utility of Minas Gerais), is developing a project about experimental evaluation of microturbines systems. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the cost of generating electricity with microturbines and show the emissions range of microturbines operating with natural gas. The cost of the microturbine generators as well as the cost of the electricity and natural gas in Brazil at this moment and the projection for the future were considered.
