The future of electricity transmission in Peru is underway, with 23 electricity distribution companies committed to investing a total of 781 million dollars in electricity transmission projects for the period 2025-2029. This commitment was presented during a Public Hearing organized by Osinergmin, the public body in Peru in charge of supervising that electric companies comply with the legal regulations of the activities they carry out.
The proposed investments are focused on electricity transmission projects to meet the growth in demand and strengthen the subtransmission system. Among the companies with the largest number of projects presented are Enel Distribución and Luz del Sur, with an approximate investment of USD 259 million and USD 123 million, respectively.
These investments will make it possible to meet the growth in electricity demand and strengthen the subtransmission system (60 KV power lines), guaranteeing a continuous and reliable electricity supply for citizens. Osinergmin will review the technical and economic studies submitted, provide observations and make technical visits to the electrical installations.
In addition to traditional electricity distribution companies, the participation of Enel Green Power, which proposed renewable energy projects with significant investment, was also highlighted. Its focus is focused on promoting the use of clean and sustainable sources such as wind and solar energy, to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and promote a cleaner energy matrix in the country.
Enel Green Power is committed to decarbonizing the Peruvian economy and is advancing in the construction of the Clemesí solar power plant in Moquegua and the Wayra Extension wind power plant. Both developments will come into operation at the end of 2023 and will be part of the largest renewable energy complexes in the country. Currently, they generate clean energy for hundreds of thousands of citizens, avoiding the emission of 385,000 tons of CO2 and creating local jobs.
