Hurricane season prep: LI firms share lessons from Sandy

When superstorm Sandy hit,water poured in 3 feet deep at the offices of EmPower Solar in Island Park.

The firm, which installs solar electric and backup battery systems for residences and businesses, continued to service clients even without full use of its office, tools or six trucks, five of which were destroyed. EmPower has worked hard to rebuild and recover since the October 2012 storm, but company officials know full well the Island isn’t immune to another devastating storm. They’ve taken extra precautions in case the region is hit again.
