A Dundee man has been accused of "recklessly producing household electricity" with a bizarre home-made transformer.

Charles McKenzie is alleged to have rigged up a "dangerous transformer assembly" at his flat in Dundee's Dudhope Court to generate power.

Mr McKenzie, 55, was not at Dundee Sheriff Court to face the charge of culpable and reckless conduct.

Sheriff George Way continued the case without plea for three weeks.

Suspended generator

The charge alleges Mr McKenzie "culpably and recklessly" produced electricity "with total disregard for the safety of yourself and others".

It looks like an apartment building. I don't care what kind of generator you've made, but hooking it up to an existing system with blatant disregard to the safety of others, this guy deserves to get fucked in the ass. In the US, you can get charged for attempted murder for doing this.

They never said he hooked it to any existing circuits, and if he had I'm sure they would have said so ! But solar generators are made to hook up to the grid ! The law hear is they have to pay you for the power you push back into the grid ! You also must get a meter that runs backwards and forwards ! If the guy was smart enough to build a coil that produced electricity , he was probably a lot smarter than the person who charged him !!

That's what I was wondering about--if he could have pushed current back into the system endangering linesmen and so forth.

Agree, he certainly seems smart enough. They should hire him instead of arresting him.
