Suffolk County Storm Status Update 11 a.m.

Department: County Executive | Posted: 11/5/2012 | Views: 2683

In flood zones for safety reasons, LIPA requires homeowners to provide an Authorization to Energize by an approved electrical inspection agency before they will re-energize homes.  Given the large number of homes impacted by Hurricane Sandy, the process which LIPA requires to ensure public safety could leave a significant number of homes without power for an extended period of time.

 

Suffolk County is therefore coordinating with LIPA, FEMA, NYS and Towns to facilitate this inspection at no cost to homeowners in the affected areas. 

 

The County is coordinating with townships to pair electrical inspectors with Code Enforcement, Building Inspectors, Fire Marshal’s, and State assets to assess whether homes are safe to repower.  The intent is to expedite power restoration to homes in the affected areas.
