Dozens of customers lined up outside of Cannondale Generators Thursday either because they need service done to their generators or they're inquiring about new ones.
The president of Cannondale Generators, Paul Bonomo, says this is the most work they have seen since Superstorm Sandy.
With some customers out of power for up to a week, Wilton residents and even residents from neighboring towns have been making the trip to his store.
They say it has been all hands on deck, with some employees working 15-hour days. In just the last two days, Cannondale Generators has had 50 to 100 people call for quotes on new generators just to prepare for the next major weather event.
"After a storm of this magnitude, people who didn't have generators will want them," said Bonomo. "People with portable generators as well want automated generators. The demand will definitely go through the roof here and through the rest of the Northeast."
The owner says being prepared and maintenance are both important for operating a generator. Safely keep it away from windows and make sure that you have working carbon monoxide alarms.
