October 15, 2022 – Early assessments of Sanibel and Captiva Islands indicated it could take months to rebuild the electric infrastructure. Thanks to many forces working together, the backbone of the system will be rebuilt making it possible to restore power to essential services such as the school, RO Plant, and a Fire Stations which are estimated to be back in power as early as next week, October 20. Once the critical infrastructure is rebuilt, team LCEC and FPL plan to work section by section to energize the island over the next two weeks. By October 23, City Hall and public safety facilities are estimated to be in service. Each section that is rebuilt or repaired makes it possible to connect additional residential and commercial customers, the majority estimated to be restored within 13 days. The harder hit sections of the Island, like North Captiva, will take time to rebuild. Attached is a complete restoration timeline for reference.
