Lima, 9 September 2014 – The amount will be aimed at improving electricity grids and street lighting in Lima and the Near North Coast.
Enel Distribución Perú has decided to substantially increase its investments in 2014 up to 437 million soles. The investment is a record in the history of the company, which is precisely celebrating its 20th anniversary of privatisation.
It will be invested in the improvement of supply coverage and quality through medium and low voltage lines and in subtransmission. The announcement states that the highest service, safety and environmental standards will be observed.
Over the last six years, energy demand in Lima has increased by 24%. And over the last eight months, energy demand in Northern Lima has grown at a rate of 4.8%, so it is necessary to accelerate investments to keep up with this dynamic.
Over the last twenty years, Enel Distribución Perú has invested more than 3 billion soles in constructing more than 15,500 km of new grids and installing infrastructure to keep up with the growth of Lima.
As a result, we provide electricity to over 1.2 million customers in homes, businesses and industries in the Peruvian capital.
