Long Island Irene Power Outage Some Residents With the Lights On After Hurricane Irene Thanks To Help From Solar Energy Systems and Standby Generators
350,000 Homes Without Power After Irene

Solar Energy Systems in Long Island have never been more relevant than they are today for long Islanders in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. With over 350,000 LIPA homes and businesses without power in both Nassau and Suffolk counties, many residents are becoming frustrated.

“If your lights are on, you’re happy. If they’re not, you’re miserable,” said Steve Levy, Suffolk County chief executive. Some residents and businesses are happy today and it is not because of luck or that they live in an unaffected area. Many residents in the Nassau and Suffolk county areas have solar energy systems with standby generators which kick on during power outages. “I needed to turn on the news to figure out that there was a power-outage because my generator kicked on as soon as the power went out” says Tom Mitchelson, a fellow Long Islander and solar energy system owner.

In Nassau County, drivers were warned to use extra caution when driving in the roads to avoid obstructions. Warnings were displayed by road traffic signs powered by stand alone solar energy trafffic signs flashing warnings and detailed messages to concerned residents and businesses. From Hurricane Irene, to the Earthquake a few weeks ago to the Tornado in Joplin, it is clear that we are living in  a new era where natural disasters are becoming more and more common. As wind and water showing to threat LIPA as well as other Electrical utilities, technologies which are powered by the environment such as solar and wind are showing one thing. The same power in the environment which has destroyed our infrastructure in Long Island, New York City and other locations are also showing to be the solution. Just as the sun, wind, and rain can destroy, so too they can provide the power we need when the utilities we came to depend on fail.

Solar Energy For Long Island and New York City Will Keep You Safe

Going Solar in Long Island and New York City is actually quite simple. With rebates and tax credits being at their all time high, it has never been a better time to call up a few installers to discuss maximizing your roof, saving money, the environment, and finally your security in the event of a natural disaster like Hurricane Irene. Your installer should be able to easily and simply provide you with the right size system but should also have the sophistication to offer and install a standby generator which will keep the lights on and the food cold in the refrigerators should disaster strike. When discussing the affordability of solar energy systems, its best to go with what is needed. Not necessarily the cheapest! Buyer beware of installers who give you solar estimates and provide you with inferior panels, limited workmanship warranties, and corners being cut. The ideal installer will have as much of the services involved in installing a system in house. These services include ENGINEERING & INSTALLATION OF SYSTEM, STRUCTURAL & ELECTRICAL DESIGN, ALL PERMITTING, REBATE PROCESSING, and ELECTRICAL WORK. A company which has all of these processes in house will be able to furnish not only basic solar energy systems but more sophistacted custom arrangments such as backup systems to the home involving stanby generators or battery backups. Also, its best if your installer has been in business for  longer than they warranty they offer. Finally, it is best that the installer has a physical business location as well as testimonials for you to confirm and view.
