California Uses Delta System to Eliminate Electrical Pollution


The electricity that travels on utility power lines is more dangerous than you think. Improperly wired utility poles and poorly designed electric distribution systems are polluting our homes, farms, schools, playgrounds and offices on a daily basis—except in California dairy areas, which are outproducing the rest of the US.

Unlike the rest of North America, California dairy areas do not allow their electrical currents to flow through the earth when traveling back to utility substations. This type of regulated electric distribution system, called a “Delta System,” keeps the utility wires from leaking and protects our farms and our health.

But unfortunately for Russ Allen, heir to the Allen Dairy Farm and author of the new book Electrocution of America: Is Your Utility Company Out to Kill You?, the stray electrical currents caused by the Wisconsin Public Service Corporation left his dairy farm futile.

“For some reason, the people in power don’t want to rectify the ongoing problem of stray voltage,” says Mr. Allen.

Studies have proven that utility wires leak up to eighty percent of electric current incessantly. California dairy areas have acknowledged this problem, but the rest of America has not.

“Thomas Edison warned us not to use the earth to return the electrical currents back to the utility substation,” says Mr. Allen, “and now we have a huge problem on our hands.”

Utility companies can prevent stray electric currents from leaking into our soil, water and living spaces by:
• Stopping the use of the bottom wires on electrical poles to return the electricity to the substation and as ground wires
• Rewiring the electrical distribution systems like we wire our homes. using a separate wire for each function
• Using the Delta System
• Using one of the several safe systems that don’t use the earth and our homes to carry the electrical current back to the substation

The solution is simple, but the problem has yet to be dealt with.

“Utility companies are too cheap, and a fix could expose the damage they are causing,” says Mr. Allen. “In order for stray currents to vanish completely, we need to group together and demand that the companies rewire their distribution systems.”

Mr. Allen is one of the heirs to the Allen Dairy Farm outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and a figurehead in the movement against the electrocution of animals. He spent months in a heated court battle with the Wisconsin Public Service Corporation and was awarded $2 million in damages.
