This new projection exceeds the previous estimates of the Supervisory Agency for Investment in Energy and Mining (Osinergmin) and represents one of the company’s most ambitious installation rates.

According to sources consulted by the natural gas supplier company in the capital, in the coming months Cálidda will continue with the distribution and installation of service pipelines in the districts of Carabayllo, Puente Piedra, Villa María del Triunfo, Cieneguilla, Santa Rosa and Window.

In turn, it will continue to gain ground in San Juan de Lurigancho, the most populous constituency in our country. This is because they are the districts where the Colombian-owned company “has the greatest number of kilometers to build.”

Currently, Cálidda has 1 million 344 thousand 82 users in Lima and Callao that benefit more than 6 million people.

“Natural gas is 100% Peruvian, it guarantees energy independence without a tax burden, since it is not imported, and it offers stability because it is not subject to international price variations,” the company told this medium.

Family discount

As recalled, Osinergmin set the promotional discount at US$154.29 per residential customer belonging to the middle, middle-low and low strata, according to the level of per capita income of the household that has been determined by the National Institute of Statistics and Computing (INEI).

For it, a concept for connection fee of US$ 57.58 has been calculated and a connection (entrance to the home) with a value of US$ 96.71.

As of December 2021, the number of residential consumers (who purchase less than 30,000 m3 of gas per day, including homes, businesses, small industries and vehicles with CNG) in the distribution concessions of Lima and Callao and Ica exceeded 1.3 million consumers, while in the North and South West concessions, the number of connected consumers exceeds 150,000.

As for independent users (exceeding 30,000 m3 per day), there are eight players who have signed directly with Cálidda and pay the average price of gas and the average cost of transportation based on the volume consumed.

It should be noted that the results of competitiveness of the final gas prices compared to the prices of substitute fuels show savings values ​​that range between 53% and 74%.

“The tariff design methodology allows us to offer customers a competitive rate that, in turn, covers the efficient costs of the company,” he says.

Gas is a savings for households

Cálidda estimates about US$77 billion in savings for Peruvians in electricity costs (35% of the country’s energy is generated from natural gas).

The investment for the 2022-2026 period projects the installation of 24.60 kilometers of steel gas pipelines and 1,855.90 kilometers of polyethylene gas pipelines.

Natural gas has important advantages over the LPG cylinder. The BonoGas allows financing up to 100% of its installation.
