Stray Voltage in North Carolina
Part 3 of 3
I spoke to you earlier this
year about the problem. The Co-op will do nothing to get rid of the Neutral
to Earth Ground Voltage on our neighborhood power distribution. I even have
5 volts on my natural gas pipes. Hopefully this story (see below) will motivate
them to fix.
Thanks, Lonn Rickstrom
Mike, these are the questions I sent
the utility Mar 22, 2004.
- Do you agree that Lumbee River
is the Source of the Neutral to Earth Ground Voltage? If not where is it coming from?
- Are you going to reconsider your
stance and fix this problem for your member's safety?
- What is Lumbee's Policy on Neutral
to Ground Voltage? What is an acceptable amount?
- Will the Cooperative consult with
and outside specialist to re-look the problem for "our" members?
