Enel Generación Perú (formerly Edegel) is a private company dedicated to the generation of electricity.
The history of the Company dates back to 1906, when Empresas Eléctricas Asociadas, private company dedicated to energy generation, transmission and distribution was founded. Many years later, in 1974, the absolute majority of the company’s capital was transferred to the State, and the company became Electrolima S.A.
In 1994, the company was divided into three business units: generation, transmission and distribution. The State gave over the control of the company in 1995 when it sold 60% of the social capital to the Generandes Consortium. The generation unit became Enel Generación Perú.
Then, in June 2006, Enel Generación Perú merged with Etevensa to integrate thermoelectric production into its business, thereby consolidating its leadership in the energy sector.
“Today we are one of the main private electricity generation companies in Peru. We have a total effective capacity of 1,682.60 MW, of which 46.7% come from hydroelectric power and 53.3% from thermoelectric power.”

As a generation company, we obtain revenues from the sale of capacity and energy. This activity is carried out under contracts with free customers, regulated customers or through the transfer of capacity and energy in the spot marketin which assets are traded for immediate delivery.
Enel Generación Perú is part of the Peruvian Distribution Network. We operate under the Electricity Concessions Law and the Committee for the Economic Operation of the Peruvian Distribution Network (COES-SINAC).
