I was on the phone today with the utility company, PSEGLI. They told me that the pole in question belongs to Verizon (the VZ nomenclature) so they at PSEGLI can't tell where this pole is located.

That means they have a high voltage wire assembly sitting atop a pole that they cannot find in their records.

It sounds like something from Alice In Wonderland.

More to come.

I finally got someone on the phone today, July 7th, at PSEGLI about the dangling wire. It turns out, I am told, that the high tension line there carries 7500 volts.

It was an amazing conversation. Even though I now had the street address of the home to which this pole is adjacent, even though I had the pole's Verizon identification number, the fellow with whom I spoke had tremendous difficultly finding the subject pole in PSEGLI records. It's as if PSEGLI has leased the pole from its owner, Verizon, but doesn't know where the pole is.

He found it eventually and thus I was promised that the issue will be 'looked into'.

More to come.


well, are you surprised? here, where nobody is responsible for anything what he/she did, and everything is just happening...
