Power Drain

I and several, but not all, neighbors are experiencing the dimming of lights at exactly 8:04 p.m. every night. We had a good laugh about it at the last neighborhood meeting as, sure enough, the lights dimmed at 8:04. I also heard from a neighbor that the power doesn't surge back until well into morning.

I reported it to Southern California Edison and they're going to have a technician check it out.

They suggested that someone in the neighborhood may have some heavy equipment or service that turns on every night at the same time that could be causing the power loss. At first they suggested a pool pump, but that would be one massive pool!

They don't think its caused by any switching at the grid as that only happens during a power outage.

If anyone has an idea of what may be turning on at 8:04 p.m., please let me know.
