Power Theft is an international problem and public safety issue with real consequences.
Billions of dollars are stolen from utilities annually, and unfortunately, these losses must be passed along to members. But it’s not just about money. Power theft poses shock and fire hazards to the perpetrators and to often-innocent family, friends and neighbors. These conditions can lead to property damage, personal injury, and even death.
