- Enel Distribución Perú has completed the second stage of the project, thereby lighting up 63% of the district.
- LED technology favours energy saving and community safety.
Lima, September 6th, 2017. – La Punta, Callao, has become the first district in Peru to have LED street lighting in most of its streets, after Enel Distribución Perú completed the second installation stage of this technology in its concession area, within the framework of an agreement with the district council.
“Now that the works are completed, 63% of the district is lit up with LED lightning. This technology uses up to 30% less energy, therefore it has a reduced impact on the environment. In addition, its greater brightness helps the recording of community safety cameras, while it works as a more efficient deterrent against crime”, said Riccardo Lama, Head of Infrastructure and Networks at Enel Distribución Perú.
LED lighting also guarantees greater durability given that its life cycle is twice as long as that of the traditional sodium lamp. What is more, this technology can be integrated into a remote street lighting management system, which could be implemented in further stages of the project.
In January 2017, the first stage of construction was completed, thanks to which the two main avenues of the district (Miguel Grau and Francisco Bolognesi) were lit up. The second stage included the main square of La Punta, the José Gálvez Park, the Tarapaca and Comandante Juan Fanning streets, and some other streets crossing the main avenues. A third and last stage is expected to be developed in 2018.
LED street lighting in La Punta is a pilot project driven by Enel Distribución Perú with the objective of highlighting the benefits of this technology, which is oriented to the development of cities with a more efficient energy consumption.
Enel Distribución Perú is an electricity utility operating in Northern Lima, in the constitutional province of Callao, and in the provinces of Huaura, Huaral, Barranca and Oyón.
