Many times we 'sparky's' are just called in to be the 'grunt', as the design work & or package is already a done deal.

The biz is full of cottage industries and associated 'guru's who hold seminars
and knock us grid-mongers

The suppliers of said goods are normally not seen, or at best a third party or special order through normal electrical supply routes
i.e- Graybar, CED, etc..

So small 'dealers' have an advantage over , and even local volume over major chains .

I did subcribe to Home Power for a while, If anything it portrays the 'grass roots' aura that in itself is attractive to aging hippies, children of flower children, and survivalists who are certain the end is near.

However, them times is a changin', and the threat of those rolling blackouts rolling into town have even the most conservative types checkin' the wind direction at new home sites.

Maybe i should renew??
