LCEC Power Restoration Update – Oct. 9 – 6:30 a.m.

October 9, 2022 – Today, utility workers continue to work aggressively toward restoring power to the remaining LCEC residents out of service in Lee County. Customers in all other parts of the six-county LCEC service territory are essentially restored with some clean-up remaining and customers unable to receive power making repairs to homes and businesses on their side.

Initially, LCEC set an ESTIMATED restoration time based on a preliminary damage assessment and was so close by the end of the night Saturday. Strengthened by continued support from the Governor’s Office and a powerful army of resources provided by electric cooperatives, Duke Energy, and FPL an incredible amount of rebuilding has been accomplished in the days following the aftermath of the most destructive hurricane in Florida’s history. The optimistic estimate was off the mark by a few percentage and the restoration team will continue to work until every home and business that is able to receive power is brought back online. Then the monumental task to begin to restore power to the barrier islands will begin.

Customers out of power at this time are urged to inspect and make repairs any damage to their home electric system if needed so they are able to receive power when restoration crews reach their area. Visit the LCEC Hurricane Guide to learn more.

LCEC reminds customers to stay away from downed power lines, turn off breakers until power is restored, and use generators safely to protect themselves and crews working on lines in their neighborhood.
