  1. im new with this thing ,and my fear = police.i hear alot of guys get caught up by electric companies qs = this...will me runnig a 600w hps in my home trigger any alarms?
    not including regular house electric useage
    what im trying to say is like whats the adverage amount of electric uses per home,and can i get away with a 600hps running daily until harvest?
    srry if boring just want to add to forum plus get started with my goal
  2. Of course not. The electric company won't be able to tell wether those 600 watts are being used to power a HPS bulb, or a dish washer.
  3. No need to apologize for asking questions, everyone must begin somewhere. That said, there HAVE been multiple threads regarding this topic, and I think the gist of most of them is that unless you're running a seriously large operation (I'm talking thousands of watts, not hundreds) then you're going to be flying WELL BELOW the radar of any overly-suspicious electric company.
