    the fact that theres almost zero DIY on routing power from telephone poles or around meters is disgraceful

      That’s because there’s almost no power in telephone wires.

        utility poles are refered to as telephone poles, telegraph poles. Not actually insinuating that they are for your phone lines.

        Bridging meters and installing isolation switches under the boards should be big frick you DIY, barely even see explosive recipes anymore. Place is zogged.

            That dudes just moronic, a pole is a pole, if it has power it will have lines at the top with insulators. If its phone or fiber there wont be any insulators, pretty simple stuff.

          I seriously doubt anyone has said "telegraph pole" in the last half century. (pic related is for the boomer brigade. remember these, from back in the dreaded "party line" era, which of course were the exact opposite of anything remotely party like; it was the telephone you had to pick up and tell Gladys next door to hang the frick up so you could make a call).

          On a similar note, do you have a problem with "stop light" vs. "traffic signal".

      Power is so cheap in the US that unless you are destitute, it's not worth the risk of attempting to steal. Also, many electric companies are run as a public utility or cooperative, so you're not really sticking it to the man.

      In the UK and parts of Europe, I totally support bypassing the meter. Electricity costs 3x what it does in the US and wages are only a third of what they are in the US. The high cost of electricity there is due to horrible policies (e.g. make the entire grid dependent on natural gas) and a shitty privatized wholesale electricity market. Post Ukraine invasion, certain electric generation companies in the UK were taking in massive profits while grannies were literally freezing because their heating bills quadrupled.

      Be the change you want to see in life. Maybe drop some hints about what anons should definitely not do if they don't want to commit a felony.

    totally legal to run an electric fence parallel to the lines
    not your fault the power company is too cheap to inductively insulate their plant

    I have been wanting to connect to the power cables before the meter box for ages. Its hot work tho and i think it'd be a problem if everyone in the neighbourhood has those mesh network meters.

    the more based question to ask:
    is there any way to send a surge of power back down the lines that will fry equipment at the powerplant itself? probably something placed before the meter so it isn't obvious

      Practically? No, not from a single residential connection. You'd destroy the transformer at the pole long before anything else. Even if you had access to a high-voltage industrial hookup, the best you could do is ruin some of the switches or transformers at the nearest substation. Realistically, the worst you could do to any grid hookup is short it out. But that's a regular electrical concern, and there's always going to be at least one OCP device to mitigate any damage from a short.

      The only even remote possibility of damaging plant equipment remotely would be a truly massive capacitor bank, capable of dumping enough current at a high enough voltage to overpower multiple layers of overcurrent protection at once. However, at that point, I'm pretty sure the inductance of the transmission lines themselves would ensure you'd just get a very impressive arc flash at whatever the nearest weak link is.
