Starting on 12/27/22 after a massive wind storm we lost power. 3 days later after using generator with no issues the main power came back on. From that moment the power started to flicker, dim, destroy appliances, motors, fans and tvs. It was intermittent and as sporadic as it could be.
Power company came by and said it was the main drop from the "weather head" ( I hope I got that word right). They replaced the line from the transformer to the house. I had good power for up to a few hours but then the problems started again and went on for days.
At day 5 they connected a recorder to the meter and I have that data finally it recorded about 10 days of data. The data has some weird information. Like when generator switch was turned on for generator ( total power company disconnect), the data says power was still drawing into the meter recorder. Until I went a number of hrs without power company the numbers never reached zero amps in some cases not at all but still pulling 2-4amps.
I have 3-5 times when on one leg, high amps, 174amps and the other reads 44.6 (voltage on that leg was 105v). That is just one example the highest was 200+ with power being drawn on both legs to total more than that. Nothing in my house draws that kind of power and I only have 100AMP service . Their engineer says I have a hot tub and 240v 10HP motor ( no I do not) to cause that draw. After the massive spike and fire in my breaker box I could not connect generator ( would trip breakers on unit)
Lastly they have replaced the transformer, I replaced my breaker box completely as it was dead from the spike. Now nothing is going on at all beyond normal, still using same grounding wire same wires to various new breakers. Except to replace damaged, I did NOTHING to change anything.
Does this sound like my home or the power company?
