How LCEC Prepares


LCEC has a comprehensive, tried and true emergency restoration plan that is reviewed and practiced year-round to ensure that we are ready for any situation that affects our service territory. In addition to this plan, LCEC has an aggressive maintenance and vegetation program that minimizes the impact to the electric infrastructure.

Our number one goal is to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. LCEC monitors weather 24/7 and LCEC employees and contractors are mobilized and properly equipped to respond as soon as safely possible. During severe storms, each LCEC employee plays an important role in the restoration plan and has been trained to be ready as needed. In addition, strong business relationships with suppliers, vendors, media and service providers ensure we are prepared to serve as quickly and efficiently as possible.
