Anyone here using lots of Electricity?
    #336337 - 12/25/09 09:18 PM (6 years, 11 months ago)

Using generators? Wind mills? Water mills? Solar Panels?


What are you doing? Are you just using electricity? I heard that people that work for the light companies get paid $20/plant if they can catch someone.

What's up with all your fear mongering over electricity usage?

Hell he is freaking me out just being on this site. Sounds like he is planning a massive indoor opperation. 5000 watts of juice being consumed in someones house 12+ hours a day is gonna draw some attention. the generator idea is crap unless you are planning something huge cause you will spend more on diesel then what a good sized crop will bring in. the windmill/watermill thing is just an impractical idea. Solar panels are gonna cost ya a good 10 grand to bring in enough juice to do a small grow. Id suggest you spend a lot of time on google maps and find a remote location outdoors for your adventures this coming spring/summer. till then just get a couple fem beans and grow them into mothers and clone the fuck out of them so everything will be ready come april. you will save a lot of money this way and less likely to get your ass thrown in jail and take down this community with you.

Well shit there is 4 threads started by him in this section just about energy usage crap. and he was talking about getting 5000 watts of t5's which is a lot more surface area than what 5000 watts in hps/mh would take up so it sounds like he wants to do a rather large room sea of green? something like what was in one of the recent issues of high times?

I say why pay for something that you can get for free outside.

Here is one of my 13 foot beauties from last summer. If my place was searched right this second they wouldnt find a god damn trace of anything illegal in my place. Be safe, play outside.

I know one thing. Over 6000watts of flowering light and 600watts of veg plus all the rest of the crap isn't enough to make them bat an eye. Over 10 years not a word said.

I believe you have been told before that it is illegal for them to "scan" your house with FLIR. Magash is in Cali I do believe.

Lol. Of course cops don't do anything illegal. They always follow the law. They never go do something illegal and THEN find a probable cause. They never switch it around like that. oh no. (lots of sarcasm here)

Barry Cooper (ex-DEA for 8 years) even said they used to do illegal FLIR all the time.

Key word "used to" I think you would hear a helicopter above your house. And if you heard a helicopter and then got brought to court there is a good chance that they used FLIR. Also how could they prove that you were growing if you dont tell anyone and its inside your house? They cant unless they are doing something against the law themselves. And your case would be thrown out in court.

If I were a cop this is what I would do. I'd FLIR everyone's house (which they do). Then I'd find a grow op or potential grow ops. I'd monitor that house. Get the electrical readings. Tell the judge I got an "anonymous tip" and then dig through their trash. Find something incriminating. Pull them over on a traffic violation and search their car. Do a simple Tap and Rap. Tell the judge I "smelled" marijuana. "Now" use the FLIR. "Now" check electrical bills. Got my probable cause. Get a search warrant. Done.

Although the cop uses illegal tactics he then backs it up and say he did it afterward. Cops do this shit all the time. They make shit up. Lie. They are professional liars and con artists.

exactly. dont ever throw anything away in YOUR garbage. throw away all grow materials together. never have anything personal in the bag. and either keep it till your done with the grow, or find a safe place to dispose properly of it.

and dont forget the smell. you shouldnt be able to smell a damn thing anywhere inside and especially outside of the house. only in the grow room/tent/whatever.

do this, and they cant get any evidence to get a warrant to search your house.

play it right. fuckin pay your electricity bill on time every month and youre fine. they dont give a fuck as long as you pay.

some guys in town got busted, same neighborhood, obviously connected. they had been doing this for years. one guy had 150 plants, the other guy had 300. took the cops 45 minutes to find the plants from entering the home. they had fake walls in the back of a bedroom closet downstairs. one guy was using 3-4 times as much electricity as any other house on the street, and the other guy was using 8-9 times as much as anyone on his street. they did it for years, but it was only a 2 week ivestigation after gettng a tip and them doing a trash pull and finding trimmings, a receipt, and bill in this dipshits garbage bag. so they raided and took them both down.

but they got away with that shit for years. it was a tip by someone that sold weed for them. pretty simple.
