Did the houses on Lea-Hutaff Island ever have electricity?

Lea-Hutaff Island, only accessible by boat, never had electrical wires running to it.

The Zejda family home was wired for electricity and powered with a solar panel. A stove and refrigerator were fueled by gas. It was the last remaining house on the island until it was destroyed by an October 2015 rainstorm and flooding partly fueled by Hurricane Joaquin skirting the coast.

A previous home built by the Glump family had a well and electric lights powered by a generator.
