But I did look a bit closer at the "connections" at the overhead power lines. Here is what I found.
|3 lines, 3 power phases. The top wire isn't connected very well.|
|Close up of the top wire.|
The insulation is color coded, blue, yellow and orange and I could see that the orange wire that had a low voltage at the meter was the wire that was "connected" to the top power line. I recalled that when the new pre-paid meter was installed the utility workers had disconnected the wiring from the power lines (even though there was a breaker at the house!) They just never properly reconnected one of the wires. They just wrapped it around the main power line a few times!
Monday I hope to see the BKPS Technical Director to see if someone can come out and more firmly attach the wire.
