If you also wanted to fuck them up you could open your plugs and change the ground to also be hot. Their metal tools would shock them and they would have no clue what's going on.

I'm no electrician either. Can someone explain to me the significance of the workers plugging the extension cord into the hydro meter? Am I to assume that there's a separate counter to measure how much electricity is being used by that one plug?

If so, and if your neighbour is aware, then it looks like they've learned from their mistakes for now.

from what some ppl have posted, they must have finally registered for temporary hydro thats why you would plug the wire to their meter.

i didn't bother reading past the first page since there are so many fail posts but that's what the damn breaker panel is for. just shut off the power to your outside outlets... it's a 30sec job that solves the problem

Hey guys, to keep the story really short, my neighbour is rebuilding their house, and everyday between 11am-3pm when no one is home the builders are plugging their power tools in our outdoor electricity plugs. Now this has been going for at least a month now, I've informed the builders a few times that we do not want them coming to our property and using our electricity, i've even left a note on the plug that reads "do not use electricity", my dad even went to the trouble of shutting off the outlets at the back. they've even gone to the back of our house and turned on the outlets. Now my parents do not want to involve the police blah blah blah... Now im just wondering what are my rights here and if theres anything i can do to stop these assholes from what they are doing.

What I also don't get is, breaker panels are usually located inside the house, no? If his dad turned it off, it would mean they would have to break into his house in order to turn it back on? And it would be stupid for the panel to be anywhere outside

You're the idiot kid. Breaker panels are not outside, at the back of the house. Maybe at a house built by you?

I already pointed that out back on page 3: "Unless your breaker panel is actually on the outside of the house, that means they have to be entering the house to re-enable the power. That's trespassing at best... break-and-enter at worst. Either is enough to have someone arrested."

"Kid", hahahaha. This is what happens when you DON'T EVEN BOTHER READING THE FIRST POST, let alone the thread.

Nobody's telling you that; you're inferring that based on your decision not to read the thread.

I think his dad was doing it wrong.

Maybe his dad just pressed the test button right on the GFCI receptacle (plug) thinking that would stop them.

Reasonable assumption, that actually makes sense. Definitely makes more sense than them breaking into his house to turn the breaker back on...

For sure he's doing something wrong. If op made no mention of someone breaking INTO his house, and they were able to "turn it back on", then he probably didn't trip the breaker but rather just hit the test button as the receptacle as someone suggested above
