I had my doubts about D. Paul and performing property preservation tasks.

He has removed all doubts.

He should go back to his blog and website.

I think in a bit of a misguided way, the video is supposed to be of some help to contractors during an initial or an HPIR. If a national were to make an in house training video for backfeeding, they would use a house just like that.
The reality is that a foreclosed property in that condition is few and far between. For us, off the top of my head, probably less than 10%.
The reality is more likely a 15k or less shack with an electrical system like the one below.



I really don't think a video like that does any new guy in this biz any good.

I agree with ya about houses in this condition being few and far between but you never know what the condition is of the hidden wire!!! Anyways, you will never find me doing this no matter what they say!!!!

Backfeeding is a dangerous practice that is illegal in many localities. If you backfeed your home’s electrical system and injure or kill a worker, you will be held liable and accountable, and more than likely will be criminally prosecuted for your actions. Further, even if no one is injured, if the utility finds that you are backfeeding their lines, you may be subject to fines.
DO NOT backfeed from a generator...
