I have a step up transformer in my basement. I run everything at 10kv. It sucks when something goes wrong but my bill is over 20 times smaller!
If I had a 10kv. Transformer in my basement, I wouldn't worry about the size of my electric bill. I'd make sure the premium on my life insurance policy is paid up!
p.s.: I apologize for the joke, since this is not a comedy web-site. But it juxtaposes the ridiculous --and dangerous-- misinformation we would be exposed to if we didn't have serious and experienced DIY'ers and professionals (in all trades) giving advice on this wonderful website! (No matter what)Don't Drink and Drive, Ever!!!
