First of all, be careful. I don't know if hotwire is the right

word to use. There is actually an interface you can purchase that

will allow you to connect a generator to your home and run it off

of that. If you are talking about stealing electricity, you are

seriously out of luck here.

If you want to power your house during a power failure. Buy a

transfer switch that will take your house completely off of the

grid. If you back feed a panel and the voltage gets into the grid.

You can KILL a lineman. You will be held liable for any damage you

cause. Lawyers will be on your steps for years. The safe way

without a switch. Is to use cords and only run what you need.
