Commit to saving energy in 2022

December 29, 2021 – In a day and time when it feels like so much is out of our control, make 2022 a year to commit to saving on electricity. By adding energy savings to your New Year’s Resolutions, you can lessen your carbon footprint while reducing your electric bill.

New Year’s Resolutions to conserve energy:

  • Unplug electronics that are not being used (e.g. coffee machines, toasters, phone chargers)
  • Swap your incandescent bulbs for LED or CFL
  • Only use your washing machine and dishwasher when you have full loads to wash
  • Use your ceiling fans to keep cool, but remember to shut them off when you leave the room
  • Invest in a programmable thermostat
  • Keep your freezer full
  • Consider adding smart devices for greater control of your energy use
  • Install reflective window tint/film
  • Keep your A/C at 78 degrees Fahrenheit when cooling your home

Christmas tree dos and don’ts

December 15, 2021 – You have trimmed your tree and the countdown is on until Santa puts presents underneath. With so much happening during the holidays it is essential to keep the following dos and don’ts in mind for your Christmas tree to both save on electricity and keep you and your family safe:


  • Do water your tree often.
  • Do keep an eye on the lights and cords. Should you notice any damage or issues, remove the lights and cord immediately, and replace with a new set.  


  • Don’t leave your Christmas tree on for prolonged periods of time, especially overnight. Not only will keeping the tree lights on add to your electric bill, but it could cause a fire if your tree is overly dry.
  • Don’t overload your electrical outlets. Pay attention to safety instructions on your lights.

Just say no to heating

December 8, 2021 – Chilly days are ahead for sunny SWFL, but LCEC reminds customers to resist the urge to crank on the heat. Since heating costs two to three times more than cooling, it is wise to consider other ways to stay warm on the chilly winter days ahead. Some energy-efficient options include using an electric blanket or small space heater to stay warm, but it is imperative to abide by all safety instructions. There is also the free option of bundling up in blankets or clothes and cuddling with your furry friend or favorite person. If you absolutely must turn on the heat, LCEC recommends setting the thermostat between 65 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

LCEC Chief Financial Officer graduates from the Management Internship Program

December 1, 2021 – LCEC is proud to announce that Chief Financial Officer Sarah Bullock has completed an intensive program in electric utility management with the University of Wisconsin. This is the most exclusive management development program in the nation for electric cooperatives.

The Robert I. Kabat Management Internship Program (MIP) is a series of workshops offered by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin. The program guides participants through all facets of the electric utility industry, including the many changes occurring around the nation.

MIP participants go through three 10-day sessions designed to challenge and educate in new, innovative management techniques. Participants leave with a better understanding of what customers want and how to ensure they get it. This program also covers the unique principles that govern the operations of electric cooperatives and how to enhance the core organization.

Only rural electric cooperative CEOs and top-level management can participate in the program. This allows for a greater emphasis of study on management and leadership challenges.

LCEC applauds Bullock for her hard work and dedication in completing this program.
