Ever seen anyone use jumper cables
on a meter box, who's meter has been removed?
Actually, this one is after the meter so no freebies here. But when I was still an electrician many moons ago and living in the south, I did a lot of hurricane
. I saw a lot of car jumper cables
, extension cords etc. used to feed services from portable generators after the meter was removed. The worst, and after every major hurricane
there are plenty, were the the ones feeding the house panel without removing the meter.
