I was thinking this was some sort of concoction that takes x amount of power and increases the output...would be neat. But then again if you
were to make a device that could increase the output, it would be your word against thiers about what it was doing and how it works to show you
weren't stealing, but increasing something from air.
Oh well, the search continues...
I wasn't talking about a bypass device either.
Just pointing out that bypass devices are the simplest way and the first to be discovered.
You can't get something for nothing, not in money or electronics.
Harnessing solar or the wind is about it for most folks.
Electric bills go into the electric company's computer and are compared.
An off-beat bill on the low side will alert someone.
You may explain one month away by 'being on vacation', but they'll look closer next time.
Here's one for apartment dwellers.
Have a higher bill than most of your neighbors?
If the electric panel is accessible to you, go to your apartment panel, turn off all the circuit breakers, see if the KWH meter is still turning.
If so, call the electric company if they bill direct or talk to the apartment manager if they do the billing.
What may be going on is, some clown in a nearby apartment has connected his - perhaps - air conditioner unit to one of your circuit breakers.
Your bill will be sky-high and he'll be basking in the cool air and counting his extra money....
