LCEC Restoration Update – Oct. 4 – 6 a.m.

October 4, 2022 – With a complement of more than 1,000 local and out of state line workers and tree-trimmers, some secured through mutual aide, and hundreds of support personnel, LCEC is making great progress restoring power to homes and businesses throughout Southwest Florida.  Just over 41% of the six-county service territory has been restored over the past five days, excluding Sanibel and Pine Island which are not accessible to line crews. The number of restoration workers will grow to 2,000 by this weekend as additional crews arrive today and tomorrow. Preliminary work on the islands will continue to prepare for restoration in those locations when possible, with the main focus on customers throughout the LCEC service territory who are able to receive power now.

Customers out of power at this time are urged to inspect and make repairs to their weather head and any damage to their home electric system if needed so they are able to receive power when restoration crews reach their area. 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.

Current restoration numbers are as follows:

A.M Area UpdateCust. OnCust. Out
Marco Island17,0982,484
Lehigh Acres31,8451,281
North Fort Myers17,51438,765

*excluded are Sanibel Island, Captiva, Pine Island

LCEC is working with Florida Electric Cooperatives and the Governor’s office to double the amount of mutual aid in the coming days. Line crews secured before the storm’s impact and these additional resources come from within Florida and all areas of the country including AL, AR, GA, MO, NC, NJ, NY, MO, TN, and TX.
