It’s time to get off the electricity grid!
Five weeks ago a coral tree fell on a powerline (not on my property) spiking my house with 11,000 volts, which destroyed computers and a solar power system. Now Essential Energy has informed me they will not compensate me for the damage. So I’m left with a bill for thousands of dollars – and it had nothing to do with me!
This is a warning to all electricity consumers in the region – the infrastructure is ageing and inevitably more trees will fall. To paraphrase Matt Taibi of Rolling Stone, Essential Energy is ‘a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of NSW’. The logical solution is to go off grid.
