*You Should Know

Neither PT Crab nor its author (Luke Hollomon) take responsibility for the accuracy of the information above. Verification of the rules and laws for your particular state is up to you and you shouldn't take our word for this stuff counting. It's your license after all. All the research above was done in good faith and is our best understanding of the interpretation of these laws, but application based on PT Crab as Con Ed is undergone at your own risk, kapeesh? Good. I'll certainly help provide documentation if you need it, but I just can't guarantee anything because laws are tougha and complicated. At the end of the day, you're responsible for your Con Ed being allowed for your licensing, not me, but I will help you figure it out if I can.
