    Does this mean the PLP will issue a press release praising the actions of Belco??

    • Kangoocar says:

      Ah yes, we can be assured of another nauseating plp press statement thanking Belco, their relatives and anyone that has even heard of Belco?

        All jokes aside – this is the second time in as many months that this circuit has tripped. Somebody is pulling some serious amperage in this area…

    I really hope this is not a sign of what lies ahead for the summer if switches are already tripping in May. Sigh.

    Ironic in that this happens the same day the news is reporting a price INCREASE for BELCO led by the Price Commission…whoever the hell they are!?
