Request for Service

Due to global supply chain issues and Hurricane Ian, new service requests may be delayed. Disruptions in raw materials and equipment supplies are currently impacting the ability to provide some services. As a result of Hurricane Ian, a backlog for new service connections may cause longer than usual scheduling delays.

Impacted customers will be notified if their service request will be delayed.

Suppliers are unable to provide exact delivery dates for inventory and LCEC will not have the ability to predict when inventory levels will reach normal levels. Supply chain challenges are expected to extend through 2023. New construction delays of 4 to 6 weeks are expected to last through early 2023.

Please understand, LCEC is working to provide service in the most efficient manner possible and will construct facilities in the order requests are received, as equipment becomes available. Thank you in advance for your patience.

Please complete the online All Services application for any of the below services:

  • New Construction (Residential of Commercial)
  • Temporary to Permanent Swingover
  • T-Pole requests

Electric Inspections

A county-approved electrical inspection must be completed and LCEC must be notified before electric service can be turned on for:

  • A newly constructed home or business
  • A newly wired home or business
  • A home or business that has been vacant for a period of time

The electrician or builder is responsible for arranging for the electrical inspection and verifying that LCEC has been notified when it is complete.

Builder Safety

Rules for electrical safety when in close proximity to power lines:

Maintaining a safe distance from power lines is everyone’s responsibility. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require that you maintain at least 10 feet from any power lines energized at 50,000 volts and below. Additional clearance is required for any power lines that are over 50,000 volts. OSHA also requires that all electrical lines be considered energized unless otherwise proven by the owner or electrical company.

Planning ahead is the key to a safe work environment. Prior to starting a job, determine if you will be within the 10-foot safety area. If you will be working in close proximity to our electrical lines and want to discuss options, as early as possible, notify the Business Accounts Team at: (239) 656-2300. We will then generate a work request and have a representative contact you to discuss options and to provide an estimate.
