Travel Plug Adapters for Chile: Come Experience Electricity Reform in Action
Tucked in between the expansive Pacific Ocean and the majestic Andes mountains sits the Republic of Chile. The copper rich region is home to massive volcanoes, famous wine routes, gourmet restaurants and destinations that speak to the soul. Among them are Easter Island, Patagonia and the Chilean Coast. Travelers can walk through ancient cities and UNESCO World Heritage sites too, like the ones in Valparaiso and Chiloe. There is also something else that needs to be said about Chile.
Largely import driven, the country’s residents rely heavily on a series of hydroelectricity plants and the Sistema Interconectado del Norte Grande grid for its power. It ranks 42 in installed GWe electricity capacity, 40 in net generation and 42 in net consumption but that’s not all. Chile is widely accepted as the first in its region to actively engage in electricity reform during the modern age. However, the ongoing reform has not been without controversy.
In 2014 alone, major news sources openly chastised the country’s government for failing to approve a large-scale hydroelectricity plant project spearheaded by two Latin American power companies. The Chilean government cited environmental concerns as their main opposition to the project while proponents of the companies accused political leaders of practicing obstructionism. Nonetheless, Chileans’ electricity use and the government’s sector reform continue to this day.
The Type C European CEE 7/16 Europlug dominates most areas of the country and the outlets generally provide 220 to 240 volts of electricity. However, there are a few out-of-the-way places that may be outfitted with Type L Italian CEI 23-16/VII plugs. Regardless of the plug variation, the country’s electricity output doesn’t waiver. So, anyone wishing to use there electronics will need to purchase a Voltage converter or a the Travel Power Plug Adapters Kit. The kit contains grounded and non-grounded travel adapters that will work with Type L and Type C outlets.
