OK, this rocks. Our landlord asked us the other day if we wanted 24-hour power in our place. With the price my organization is already paying for the place (exorbitant, to say the least – upwards of $30k a year) we had to say no to any additional costs.
BUT – it looks like the neighbors decided to go for it. And the best part is that the main wall in our living room adjoins their apartment – and somehow we are on their grid. That means that we have at least one wall of the apartment (luckily the one that the DVD player and TV are attached to!) where we get power all day long. BONUS! It doesn’t sound like much, but if you’ve lived on limited power you’ll know just how exciting that really is.
