    All the volts get built up with these new low energy hipsters with their el ee dee lights and stuff. So the volts all pool to the top and need to be scooped off with a voltage scoop, or it needs non hipsters to start up a load of big chunky electrical chunklic chunkatronic chunk.

    I know what you’re saying. He needs to do more 15 amp welding through 13 amp sockets.

    In some areas of the country where this issue is prevalent, they have shifts of welders to use up the extra volts. Round my way what we do is run the air raid sirens (which are mounted on the timber pylons and have been since the war) for as long as necessary.
