As part of Enel Distribución's plan to renew lighting systems in sports courts, including 53 projects completed since 2018, we delivered a multipurpose sports court to the René Schneider neighborhood in San Joaquín with new lighting for its neighbors and community.
This project aims to recover and refurbish public sports facilities. It also considers the modernization of electrical systems and lighting to raise their safety and energy efficiency standards thanks to the use of LED technology, in line with the company's purpose of bringing the benefits of electricity to more people and places.
"The court's lighting renovation plan provides residents of the René Schneider neighborhood with a safe, sustainable and inclusive space for gatherings aiming to promote sports and wellbeing. At the same time, installing efficient lighting allows us to address the climate crisis through electrification," explained Camila De la Quintana, head of sustainability and community relations at Enel Distribución.
As part of our work to modernize these neighborhood playing courts, a gratuitous bailment will be signed to transfer the administration and maintenance of the electrical systems to social and municipal organizations to ensure equitable access to non-polluting energy.
This initiative is part of Enel Distribución's Sustainability Plan and contributes to Sustainable Development Goal number 7, which emphasizes the pillar "Energy Poverty, Access, Equity, and Quality." In addition, our 2022 plan contemplates improving the lighting of an enclosure in Tiltil, totaling six public sports courts this year.
