LIPA Update on Long Beach, Lido, Point Lookout

The following information was provided by Long Island Power Authority regarding the City of Long Beach, Atlantic Beach, Lido Beach, and Point Lookout.

LIPA is working closely with designated representatives from these communities who are assessing whether homes and businesses are safe to receive power, and notifying LIPA to restore power.

If you prefer not to wait for a visit by a survey team, you may hire a licensed electrician or electrical inspection agency to perform an electrical inspection for you at your cost.

If you choose this option, an electrical inspection certification must be submitted to LIPA, as more fully described below, whether or not repairs are required.

If a surveyor determines that your home or building does not demonstrate any visible evidence of flood damage that may have affected your electrical equipment, we will schedule your power to be turned on.

If the surveyor determines that your home or building demonstrates visible evidence of flood damage that may have affected your electrical equipment, you will be required to produce an electrical inspection certification from a licensed electrician or electrical inspection agency before your power can be restored.

All customers are free to obtain an electrical inspection prior to the restoration of power at any time.

Restoring Service to premises determined unsafe to receive electric service
If inspectors determine that the home or building is unsafe to receive electric service, you will be advised to hire a licensed electrician to make the necessary repairs. Once those repairs have been made, an electrical inspection certification must be submitted to LIPA.

Once we receive this certification, we will schedule your power to be turned on.

Submitting Certification to LIPA that power can be safely restored
You, your licensed electrician or electrical inspection agency can submit electrical inspection certification by fax at: 631-844-3643, or email at: servicecert@service.lipower.org

Thank you for posting this. Do you know our City Manager has no idea about how to get power on after getting wiring corrected? Asked him today and he had no idea. If it wasn't for the Patch we'd still not have any idea what is going on.

This is a lie! My MIL is staying with me bc her power has been off. She received a call Saturday night that the power was back on. Last night another tenant in the house said there was almost a fire. The landlord confirmed no one contacted her to check the panel which was submerged in water before the power was restored. In their efforts to be able to say they turned things back on LIPA and the government are being wreckless and not accounting for the safety of its citizens.

t'his article says nothing concrete. where is the power at 750 Lido Blvd; inspectors came last Friday; and said transformers were no good. when will they be back? how long will it take? it's all rubbish; and we've been getting the runaround since the being. today is 2 weeks without power; give us a DATE FOR POWER TO BE RESTORED; otherwise don't write worthless articles; all you're doing is repeating the same stuff OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.............

750 Lido Blvd has regained POWER, and thanks to all the hard work of the poor guys on the poles.....NO THANKS TO THE MGT OF LIPA, you guys stink. A special thanks to the BOARD AT TOWNE HOUSE APT who worked nite and day to get our power turned back on. Thank you to our mgr Paul who stayed thru out the entire time with his family. Hopefully all will be safe.

Why did I pay Nassau Suffolk Electrical Corp. $100.00 for a inspection certificate, that is useless. The city manager does not know what to do with my certificate, along with the building inspector & LIPA too!!!! Do I really have money to waste at this time JACK???
