Power, Lighting in Storage Cage

March 3, 2015

Many residents have commented on the desirability of having their own electric power and/or lighting in their storage cages and a cunning plan has been devised to enable this.  Most people’s air-conditioning unit is in close proximity to their cage and the idea is to tap into their a/c power supply.  Importantly, the circuitry that’s been devised is both legal and safe.  An estimate is about $450 an installation for a double power-point. If that seems a bit pricey, it’s because of the necessity for a residual-current circuit breaker (RCCB). With a neon light, the estimate is about $500 all up. Where the a/c is distant from the cage, some further cost would obviously be entailed.)  Of course, tenants would have to have their landlords’ agreement.
