Barely whisper the name “Sandy” on Long Island and PTSD sets in for many residents. The 2012 hurricane cost New York $41.9 billion in recovery and mitigation expenses, and millions in the Northeast were without power for almost two weeks. When Hurricane Isaias hit earlier this month in the middle of a pandemic, concern was high. Calls for energy storage systems increased significantly for Long Island residential and commercial solar installer SUNation, and now demand for batteries is far outpacing the company’s supply.
In this episode of the Contractors Corner podcast, Solar Power World talks with Scott Maskin, CEO of SUNation, about this crazy year, from being shut down for 12 weeks at the beginning of COVID-19 to now being overwhelmed with business as the next natural disaster hits.
