LCEC – Lee County Electric Cooperative



Protecting and preserving cherished resources, including majestic landscapes, animals and birds, is an endeavor that LCEC understands. LCEC partners with local experts and customers to help balance the need for electricity with the needs of the environment.

Avian Protection

LCEC is proactively working toward protecting birds of prey and other large birds from potential power line risks, in accordance with both the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) and the Eagle Protection Act (EPA). In support of this objective, LCEC initiated an Avian Protection Plan (APP) in 2002 in an effort to protect birds from potential electrocution hazards and collisions on their existing power grid. In addition, since 1993, LCEC has been partnering with customers to provide alternate habitats for osprey located away from electric system facilities.

A revised process for requesting osprey platform partnerships is under development and will be coming back again in 2019.

LCEC follows state and federal guidelines by recycling materials. Each year, LCEC is able to recycle aluminum, copper, steel and other equipment to generate revenue that is reinvested into the system. In addition, materials such as plastic, paper and wood are routinely recycled and employees and contractors are encouraged to participate.

Preservation and Information

LCEC has established long-term partnerships with local government, wildlife agencies and organizations to provide informational publications to local residents and visitors. Protecting and preserving the precious areas and inhabitants of the LCEC service territory begins with information. We are proud to partner with experts who are passionate about Southwest Florida’s unique resources.
