in my experience when something from outside the power grid is conducted or 
induced on to the power grid and re-radiated from wires belonging to the 
utility the fault still lies on the source. The utility becomes a victim of the 
noise just as the people around it such as hams are. So the fault of that 
device is not on the utility. The fault is with the person that owns the device 
causing the interference.
