LCEC Energizes the Community
By the LCEC Public Relations Team
Established in 1940, Lee County Electric Cooperative, Inc. (LCEC) is a not-for-profit electric distribution cooperative. Beginning with 15 miles of distribution line and 158 members, LCEC now has over 8,000 miles of distribution and transmission line, almost 200,000 customers, and is one of the largest electric cooperatives in the nation. LCEC serves Cape Coral, North Fort Myers, Marco Island, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Pine Island, Everglades City, Immokalee, Ave Maria, and parts of Lehigh Acres.
The LCEC vision is to deliver the power that energizes our communities. This vision encompasses delivery of electricity but it also expresses commitment to supporting our communities through philanthropic endeavors and volunteerism. Through personal donations and fundraising activities, LCEC employees are among the top contributors to the United Way. Employees also volunteer their time and talents to countless other social service, educational, environmental and health-related agencies and programs. LCEC is proud to offer the Power to Share program which is funded through employee and customer contributions and administered by United Way 211 to aid customers experiencing a hardship with their bills.
LCEC also strives to protect and preserve cherished resources, including water, urban and rural lands, vegetation, animals and birds through environmental efforts. LCEC partners with local experts and customers to help balance the need for electricity with the needs of the environment. Support of multiple wildlife initiatives, a year-round recycling program and the Osprey Protection Program are just a few of the ways LCEC contributes.
The LCEC PR team consists of three dynamic divas, two of which are actively involved in FPRA!
