Electricity and Gas Theft: Illegal, Costly—and Dangerous
Electricity and gas theft is a problem all energy utilities face—and their customers share. It’s estimated that energy theft costs utilities billions of dollars annually, and these losses generally are passed along to customers in the form of higher rates. People who steal electricity, gas, or both are often unaware of the risks involved, and they create situations that not only endanger themselves and their property but also violate electrical codes and threaten public safety. We take a proactive approach to this serious problem and are committed to protecting our customers, eliminating theft and reducing related costs. Our staff of investigators works closely with other utilities as well as local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in detecting, investigating and prosecuting anyone found diverting, bypassing or tampering with an electric or gas meter.
