Due to a system upgrade, Smarthub and Pay Now will not be available on Saturday, December 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience.
Lee County Electric Cooperative, Inc., ( the “Cooperative”) hereby gives public notice regarding the process to be followed in implementing the statutory directives in the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which amended the Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA) of 1978. The amendment established new Federal standards under Section 111(d) of PURPA, in which certain non-regulated electric utilities, such as the Cooperative, are required to consider and to “make a determination whether it is appropriate to implement such standard[s]” within certain defined timelines based on evidence collected pursuant to a public notice and hearing.
This notice is being posted on the Cooperative’s website at https://www.lcec.net/. The two new PURPA standards which the Cooperative must consider are set forth below. Eligible Participants in the Cooperative’s PURPA Consideration and Hearing Process consist of any and all active members (on or after the date of this notice) of the Cooperative and the Secretary of the Department of Energy. If any Eligible Participant is not able to access the Cooperative’s website and desires a copy of the Notice, they should contact the Cooperative: (a) by phone: 239-995-2121; (b) by U.S. Mail: at P.O. Box 3455, North Fort Myers, FL 33918; or (c) by email to PURPA@lcec.net to receive a copy.
The two new PURPA Standards are summarized below:
16 U.S. Code §2621(d)
(20) Demand-Response Practices
(21) Electric Vehicle Charging Programs
