If you are going to back feed, you have to turn the main breaker off but this will not prevent juice from going out to the poles. If you don't turn off the main and the power comes back on, you'll overload your panel and fry it. Electricity can flow back to the lines over the neutral wires.Mattman3969 said:If you are trying to feed it through your breaker panel just make sure you turn the main breaker off. You don't want to back feed any electricity back into the downed lines that the crews could get lit up by.
If you can drive to the Humphrey facilities in Brookville, Pa, you can purchase a pallet for ~ $10 per 20lb bag. I make the trip once a year and I'm good to go for another year.I've thought about going to the Brookville plant, but I'm only out that way during hunting season. 2 problems. The truck is full of hunting gear, and I don't have a closed trailer. Most years the truck doesn't have a deer in it, but a guy can hope, right?
