Power outages may occur from Hurricane Ian

September 27, 2022 – For more than 82 years LCEC crews have been restoring power quickly when Southwest Florida storms hit. An automated mapping and facility management system provides line crews with instant information through lap-top computers installed in their vehicles. This is just one LCEC tool that improves reliability and restoration time.

LCEC’s line crews are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to brave severe weather, life threatening situations and unique environmental challenges to ensure the lights stay on. They use the proper safety equipment and emphasize safe work practices. It is important for customers to be aware of the following safety measures also:

  • Do not touch downed power lines.
  • Do not step in water near a downed power line.
  • Do not touch a person who has come in contact with an energized power line. Call 911.

Customers can rest assured that LCEC line crews will hit the pavement as soon as it is safe following Hurricane Ian to restore any power disruptions. We will work around-the-clock to restore customers as quickly as possible!
