Pillars of Support: A Look at Our Annual Sponsors
LCEC Energizes the Community By
the LCEC Public Relations Team
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.
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.
LCEC PR team consists of three dynamic divas, two of which are actively
involved in FPRA!
