I think the power company will be by eventually, and then your fate will be in other people's hands.
It's better to keep your fate in your own hands.
I would reduce the number of lights & the size of the grow.
Maybe take the money you saved & invest it when the stock market goes all 2009.
Why would I reduce the size of the grow?
Open to thoughts, just donít follow the logic... could u expand?
As I see it, If the power co. Somehow deems the meter faulty (when they visually check the numbers on the dial every **3rd month) theyíll replace it and Iíll pay the bill that comes...
** they only come every 3 months because they laid off most of the meter readers when they installed smart meters 5 years ago.. so now if u still have an analog meter they only come out every 3rd month to read it.
10k Watts is around $500 power bill in my area, not uncommon for people to be pushing 20k watts in a home/ outbuilding
Iím only running 5k at a time on a flip box.. so not anywhere near limit of the service (150amp)
