Santiago, June 22, 2021 - Enel Distribución has implemented a precautionary plan to address possible interruptions to the electricity distribution system from the rain that is forecast for the Metropolitan Region.

The company also points to its website enel.cl/clientes, the twitter account @EnelClientesCL, the Facebook Fan Page "Enel Chile", the free application for cell phones "Enel Clientes Chile" and Contact Center numbers 6006960000 - 800800696.

To use this new feature, it is important that customers update their data through the appropriate company service channels.

Enel Distribución has a georeferenced technological platform where you can consult the state of electricity supply detailed per sector and municipality. Information is updated every 15 minutes on the enel.cl website and can be accessed directly through the link https://www.enel.cl/es/clientes/servicios-en-linea/mapa-en-linea-cortes.html.
