Are you suggesting that the high voltage is intentional ? Do you know
something I don't ?
To answer some of the questions from other posters :
I have checked neutral vs. ground (0V). I checked three to four outlets
around the house. All show identical readings. Yes, I did find one or two
lights have blown. Also, my TV has gone bad and had sparking from the switch
a while back (at the time when I was observing the intense radiation around
the house). The TV shows only some lines in the top half. The audio is OK,
except once even that deteriorated and went off. Then, it came back.
< Once I get a fix on this I will be calling the utility co. I did see the
electrician - a white man ~ 40 yrs. - going around replacing lawn lights and
garage lights, checking outlets, etc. just last week or so. >
