A new culture of light
Smart lighting for smart cities
Enel X brings sustainable light to Chile
The project has not only involved the modification of over 80% of the public lighting in Linares but also enhanced the perception of safety in the streets for the city’s 80,000-plus residents. This type of initiative can also be extrapolated to much larger contexts. In the metropolitan region of Santiago Enel X has won a tender for replacing and maintaining 17,684 public lighting units in Quilicura, a city with over 220,000 inhabitants. Latest-generation LEDs with a life expectancy of up to 100,000 hours form part of an efficient restyling that provides the South American city with savings of 61%.
Artistic lighting for architecture and landscapes
Light panels have also been installed to intensify the symbolic importance of this water resource to people in the area and draw attention to the path to be followed when darkness falls by visitors seeking to listen to the voice of the Nere as it tells its tales of history and nature. The sustainable lighting developed and installed by Enel X transforms cities, art and nature, creating value and promoting culture and sharing. It respects both the environment and the smarter, greener future we are building together.
