Is Stray Voltage Real?

Comment from Mike Holt: This issue of Stray Voltage is real and we in the electrical industry need to learn more about why it occurs and how it can be fix. Sometimes it caused by wiring errors or equipment failures, as well as cathodic protection for underground piplines, But, typically it's caused by the electric utility wiring system, which uses the earth as the return path for neutral current. In the next few weeks or months, I will have those who are experts on this topic explain the causes and the solutions. If you have any information or if you would like to contribute, please let me know. But to get you started, visit,, watch the video, go to the links. I really feel so sad for the farmers, because their lives can be so distroyed and when they try to get help, they are usually treated like they are nuts.

Oh well, here we go again, opening up another can of worms.
