north carolina: 811: The Number To Call For A Different Situation - 08/11/10 06:13 AM
Since today is August 11 (8-11 day), I thought I would share a different phone number the is useful in North Carolina. It is 811, and it is an important number to call before digging across our state! You should call 811 before any digging project - large or small. One free call to 811 a few days prior to digging starts the process of having underground utility lines marked. This simple call reduces the chance of diggers unintentionally striking a utility line and causing inconvenient outages, harm to themselves or someone else, and/or repair costs.

The ban on aluminum cans (1 comments)

A question was brought up to me this past week about weather North Carolina power companies allow for “Net Metering”
Net Metering is defined by Wikipedia as ”an electricity policy for consumers who own (generally small) renewable energy facilities, such as wind, solar power or home fuel cells. "Net", in this context, is used in the sense of meaning "what remains after deductions" — in this case, the deduction of any energy outflows from metered energy inflows. Under net metering, a system owner receives retail credit for at least a portion of the electricity they generate. Most electricity meters accurately record in both directions, allowing a no-cost method of effectively banking (0 comments)
