whats needed to be done to bypass the power meter? who sells bypass power boxs?
this may not be the place to ask that question. most growers don't agree with stealing power. i'm all for it but you'll end up getting busted eventually. and they just won't hit you with a fine or take your meter away. stealing power is a sure sign of growing and the utility company just calls the feds to come break your door down. meter readers aren't stupid. they can spot that shit a mile away. plus with new transformers and smart meters it's basically impossible. they can measure the return neutral on your grid and tell if you are stealing power.
Don't know the answer to that question, but I do know that stealing power is a major no-no in terms of avoiding unwanted attention.
I wouldn't try it.
It is easy to do... hard to get away with. I worked for an electric coop for 4 years. getting away with it depends on how sophisticated the system is.
If you live in a large and or new area, chances are you WILL get caught within 2-3 billing cycles. Theft is theft.....
If the area you live in is very rural or very old as far as the ststem goes, You might get away with it for years.
There is a way to do it that I won't discuss publicly but the things about Magnets, tires, foil, etc on the meter is pretty much crap. It will just make you look stupid. And these things are obvious at what you are trying to do. Dont bother with them.
Id just invest in some solar to help offset the monthly bill some. note, I did not say off set the cost. them panels sure arent cheap, and would be a whole bunch of 50-70$ more a month bills.
I am looking into building my own panels, basically just gotta locate a decent source for the photo cells themselves, and wire them together, creating a larger more powerful unit. Granted, thats a bit simplified.
Really? You going to ask for a good place to find lockpicks and gloves so you can rob your hydro store to get free nutes next? People like you really make it hard for marijuana legalization efforts to be taken seriously. Pay your fucking bills, don't steal, be an upstanding individual, you will be helping make it legal. Every watt you steal is another argument someone in congress will use to prove that weed causes crime. Anyways, thanks for encouraging the stigma on weed. Seeing as every time someone commits a crime, and pot is involved, it is assumed we all do it.
Also, I'm pretty sure this is in the wrong place. "Advanced marijuana cultivation" is for advanced GROWING techniques, not criminal ones.
Stealing power is a fast track to getting caught.
No matter what I think of your practice, I am sure you dont want to bunk with bubba.
stealing power is stupid and very dangerous.
just pay your bill, ya cheap bastard. you make the rest of us look bad.
exactly, its better to just pay for it.
....and it's unethical, but when did ethics or positive morals stop most stoners from getting some dope?
THOU SHALL NOT STEAL
ive been offered several times for it to be done for me, i still refuse every single time. stealing is stealing and karma can be a btch
does it involve a magnifying glass?
no man you need a ball point pen a paper clip and some chewing gum to try n pick the jail cell lock you idiot , its bad enough that we have to do what we do to get what we get so just be a real person and spend a few bucks..
Id have to be stupid or just a rat, to ask such advise.
i'll turn your ass in myself
it involves dealing with live electricity raw from power company it can kill you ! electrician could tell you find someone local to help if you are bent on this but it will attract attention if you go hard on it consider commercial space if you want to run a bunch or pay ur bill
first cut into the metal pipe from the ground use a multimeter to find positive and ground then put those two wires on your tongue.
snitch...I don't agree with stealing power but I hate a snitch even more.
Oh and to the OP, you can apply for your power companies "care program" which is offered to low income residents. It reduces your bill in half. As long as you don't have 1,500-2,000 bills you might* be ok.
cowards and thieves, hope he moves to your neighborhood and steels from you
