I spent some time on the internet and do not have a definitive answer as the I could not find the National Electric Code on line I guess they want to sell you the manual. But from what I have learned the tree trimming on the tree in front of our house likely did not measure up to standards of 10 ft of clearance vertical and horizontal from house and tree limbs. I may have a case for tree removal now. this is the tree that arced over and caught on fire from the 8KV primary electric lines. Good show JOESKI

As always I can count on GB Joeski to write some interesting and thought provoking things.

This is quite interesting because I never thought how high above the house high voltage lines should be. We had a problem last summer with the 8KV lines going to ground through the tree in front of our house now I need to make sure that the utility has the height correct. I am guessing that there may be an issue. Lines in the city should be buried anyway. There is a tendency to use what is there as it saves a lot of labor. In one way I have no sympathy people building in flood prone areas expecting others to pay for their problems but in another way you buy a place that was not built to regulation and have to spend money you don't have to fix the problem. I don't want to be too close to the ocean. I am close enough 2 miles away but closer to the Charles River 4 blocks away. We have had some flooding when rains exceeded the storm drains ability to carry the water.

Re/ NJ Utility Poles: It's amazing that no on from the Power Co. said or saw NOTHING while that house was being constructed...someone saw/knew *something* - yet went silent. What a mess. Heck, if there's no transformer on it, what's the big woop any ways? ~drill'

My home was built in the mid 70s, nice lots and alleys. All utilities are buried in the alley. My son's home was built in the 90s, small lots and no alleys. All utilities are buried under the street. I would think that there would be more effort to bury electric lines to protect them from ice, falling trees and hurricanes. It would seem like the emergency relief money should have covered it, but that is you and me. All homeowners in the affected area should share the cost, maybe be prorated. Homeowners well away from the beach shouldn't have to pay increased rates if the electric co. raises the poles. Should people even be allowed to rebuild in dangerous flood prone areas. Is the sea rising??

Looks like Punk. Phil the gofer damned us to at least 2 more weeks of winter. :))

Agreed, A solar eclipse will reduce the total power less than a rainy day. Some PR person justifying a big salary. I was just trying to share a chuckle. I just paid my last non-solar electric bill, $72.90 we have natural gas heat, cooking and laundry drying. We almost double that for 3 to 4 months when we are running the AC. June is the hottest and driest month, 2 years we were above 100° for 39 days straight, clear skies and the humidity runs <10%. Solar should really cranking out the kWhrs then. Warren

Not to worry, my land yacht has a dinghy lil' 1.0 liter 49hp Geo Metro XFI (53city/58highway) that I use when in Dry Dock/offshore from port. XD

Did you see this?

by jimmy544  Feb 28, 2015

Well the bill came and it was good news all around. The methane bill came to 268 considering how cold it has been near miraculous. I used 278 kw hours so still have a credit of 74 bucks. That should get me through the rest of the winter without paying for electricity. Our trip to the southlands helped in late Jan. with electric consumption. Panels showed minimal melting today some minor improvement but it was never out of the twentys today.
