LAKELAND, FL (Dec 31, 2015)
On Wednesday, December 30th, a Lakeland Electric customer advised our Call Center of a new scam. A person claiming to work for Lakeland Electric called the customer on the telephone and advised them Lakeland Electric would arrive at their business soon to turn off the electricity. The unknown caller then stated the customer should pay cash to the Lakeland Electric employees when they arrived so their electricity would not be cut off. This is a scam. Lakeland Electric will never call our customers and tell them to pay an LE employee cash at their home or place of business. We DO NOT collect money in the field. Please be advised.
So unless you want to fork over a chunk of change to a complete stranger, we recommend reviewing the following tips:
If you receive a suspicious email from your utility...
If you receive a strange phone call from your utility...
If a stranger shows up to your house claiming he's with your utility...
It is important to demonstrate good judgment when dealing with your personal information.
Scammers are always coming up with new ways to trick you, but if you remember these tips, you'll be able to protect yourself and your family.
LAKELAND, FL (September 8, 2015) — Lakeland Electric (LE) has a long history of developing solar projects in the community. It started in 1994 when LE launched a solar street light project and continues today with the recent completion of the Bella Vista Solar Farm in Northwest Lakeland. And, by the beginning of 2016, two more solar farms will be built in Lakeland. --- one on East Main Street near Combee Road and Reynolds Road and the second on Medulla Road by the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport.
This means by the beginning of 2016, LE will have a total of six solar locations generating over 20 megawatts of power --- that is enough to power 7000 houses when the sun is shining on a
summer day! #PublicPower #BuildingStrongerCommunities.
