The process of power restoration following a major storm

The process of power restoration following a major storm

June 9, 2022 – LCEC works 24/7/365 to distribute electricity to more than 235,000 customers in Southwest Florida. Although the electrical system itself is complex, the process of restoration can be easily understood because it goes in steps.

  • The first step in our restoration plan is damage assessment, which includes physical inspections of our facilities and plants. Once damage assessments have been made, LCEC begins repairs.
  • Secondly, we repair main circuits and critical facilities such as hospitals, police and fire stations.
  • The third step is to restore services to the greatest number of customers as soon as possible.
  • Lastly, LCEC begins restoring power to those small pockets or individuals still without power.

Storm season began on June 1 and LCEC is ready if a storm heads to SWFL. LCEC reminds all customers to be patient if and when power outages occur. In addition to the need for it to be safe for our linemen to hit the pavement, there are global supply chain issues which may result in major service delays extending through 2023. LCEC is taking measures to mitigate the situation, and thanks customers in advance for their patience.
