Enel warns of the danger of flying kites near aerial electrical connections

Published on Wednesday, 29 April 2020

Lima, April 29th, 2020. Enel Distribución Perú has advised residents of San Juan de Lurigancho to avoid flying kites close to overhead power grids, as this can cause service interruptions and even put their lives at risk.

In recent days, company personnel has found abandoned kites hanging in medium-voltage aerial networks throughout different areas of the district, which has caused electrical supply interruptions in the area.

When in contact with the power lines, these elements create a risk of fire or line fall and can even produce an electric shock that instantly hits the person handling the kite.

Enel Distribución Perú urges all neighbors to avoid carrying out these types of activities if they are in an area where aerial electrical connections are present, to safeguard their lives and that of their families. Likewise, the company reminded its clients of the authorities' indications to stay home and avoid COVID-19 infection.

The team of professionals and technicians of Enel Perú and its contractors continues to work during the State of National Emergency to guarantee that the electrical service reaches all homes and entities that keep fighting against COVID-19. Likewise, as a means to help its clients stay at home, the company has enabled a web platform for information and consultations at www.enel.pe, where clients can learn about the status of their receipt, benefits, digital payments, and more.
