Here's some stuff needed by the nice people at the
Occupy Oakland camp,
14th St. & Broadway, Oakland, California, USA.

(Transportation:
BART 14th Street Station)

I'll explain more later today or tomorrow
- no time for me right now.

These are desired in order to make the camp safer, more well lit, more
beautiful,
and enable electronic equipment like laptops, tablets, cell phones, wifi
& (video) cameras.


=== Infrastructure donation requests:
- from most any hardware, department or variety store:
Ace, Orchard, Home Depot, Sears, Target, Walmart, KMart, Safeway,
Luckys, Walgreens, CVS.


=== Lights

1 string white decorator lights (outdoor suitable preferably, but not
necessary)
- (LED or tiny incandescent, with white wire covers preferably for easy
wire visibility)

1 string multi-colored decorator lights outdoor suitable
- (LED or tiny incandescent, with white wire covers preferably for easy
wire visibility)

== Safety GFCI
- Electric outlet box with water cover, metal or plastic & painted

- Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter - GFCI. Outdoor style preferred, but
not necessary.
- like in home kitchen, bathroom, laundry - for use wherever there
is water/outdoor.

Meter - Electric watt/voltage/current outlet meter

Multi-outlet - with 15 Amp circuit breaker with reset & on/off switch

extension cord - 50-75-100 grounded, outdoor type.

Multi-outlet - with 15 Amp circuit breaker with reset & on/off switch

10-15-20 foot extension cord with ground (3 prong / 3 hole socket)

circuit tester - 3 LED (indicates proper ground, power, wiring, etc)

lights - Compact Fluorescent for light pole - 25W = 100W incandescent
equivalent.


===
We want to meter & record the electrical usage,
and ask for money donations to pay for electricity.
We will record the usage & send payment for utilities to the Electric,
water, sewage companies.

It should be roughly approximately $10 per day for electricity.

This will save on gasoline for electric generators.
It will be quieter than gas engine generators.
The generators are useful for backup, or temporary extra usage.
