Newsday: Letters to the Editor

The storm resiliency measures highlighted in Newsday’s article are smart and forward-looking. However, a critical step to consider is solar-ready construction. This building practice is already required in the Town of Brookhaven and in New York City. The building code provides for optimizing solar system output by allocating sufficient area, proper pitch and orientation. A solar-ready building allows for solar panels to be installed cost-effectively to maximize production either right away or in the future. – David Schieren
