Barranca: electricity service after heavy rains early in the morning

Published on Wednesday, 6 February 2019

Lima, February 6, 2019. We regret the difficult situation that Barranca residents are experiencing after the downpour early this morning. In view of this event, we inform the public of the actions taken by Enel:

1.    The heavy rains caused the flooding of a power substation in Barranca downtown early this morning. Following our safety procedures, a decision was made to take it out of service temporarily, leaving 180 households in the Castilla, Vilela and Progreso streets without electricity. However, the issue was resolved this morning, and the electricity service has already been restored in the homes of our customers.

2.    We have started the inspection of the public lighting in the area to counter possible electrical risks and guarantee its adequate operation.

3.    Our customers are kindly requested to take all safety measures in their homes and not to tamper with electrical installations. Should an anomaly be detected, please report it to Fonocliente 517-1717. Please remember that the safety and wellbeing of people always come first under these circumstances.
