LIPA takes step back from inspection requirement
In a reversal of their previous stance, LIPA officials are calling for a regeneration of the power grid, without the requirement for homes to be inspected. Local officials LIPA strongly urge, however, that residents to turn off their main breaker before power is restored, and suggest that residents contact a licensed electrician to determine if their electrical systems have sustained irreversible damage from the storm.
For more information about this policy change, please contact LIPA at 1-800-490-0075; or Suffolk County at (631) 852-4900.
