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

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.

by jimmy544  Feb 28, 2015

Panels here are still about 1/3 clear some progress since yesterday but not much temps are still in the 20s but full sun. More snow is predicted for tomorrow night and Monday morning but only 3-5 inches as of last night's prognostication. We may see the feb bill today or not depending on US Mail.

Too true, Joeski1. Only anti-environmental, pro-fossil fuel articles (including opinion pieces) are allowed on this site. Have a good one!

by orphancarguyPE  Feb 27, 2015

I crunch numbers because there is a part of me that is still suspicious that going off fossil fuels just won't work, especially here. We had a blizzard that dumped 87 cm/34 in of snow on the 15/16th blown about by winds right here reaching 126 km/78 mph, for drifts across the road at my driveway that were 22 ft/7 meters high. We were stuck at the house for 6 days...but its 5F (feels like -11F) outside and 72 inside just from my solar air heater alone, and the dishwasher is running on hot water from the solar hot water panels on the roof..so I'm even closer to being convinced that I could go the last 13% and be off fossil completely.
