Of this total, 14 projects have already been completed during the last year 2022, 36 are in the execution phase, 20 are in the hiring process, 5 in process prior to the selection process, 16 in the technical file preparation phase, and 32 are preparing a pre-investment study.

The specialists of the General Directorate of Rural Electrification (DGER) of the MINEM, point out that, as a result of the works carried out, the electrification of 86% in rural areas of the country has been completed, and the projection of rural electricity coverage is to reach 93% of households in remote and difficult-to-access sectors by the end of 2023.

Among the largest projects, those that will be developed in the southern regions of the country stand out. For example, in Puno, works will be carried out for a total of S/ 363.2 million, benefiting 193 thousand inhabitants of various communities in the provinces of Azángaro, Carabaya, Lampa, Melgar, San Antonio de Putina, Huancané, among others.
