  • Fraud and theft of electric service result in higher energy costs for all customers.
  • Tampering with electric meters poses a serious danger—to you and your property, your neighbors and our employees.
  • When electricity is being stolen, more power often flows through the lines than is expected, potentially creating power surges and system failures due to high loads. This means a greater risk of fire and outages.  
  • Illegal connections to power lines are always unsafe. Anyone who comes into contact with them is in danger, including children, our employees and even the thief.
