Energy Theft/Meter Tampering Costs YOU!
Energy theft costs YOU the member. When dishonest members do not pay for electricity they have used, honest members must pick up their tab.
- We prosecute energy thieves.
- Thieves are billed for diverted energy plus investigation fees.
- A $100 safety inspection fee is assessed for meter tampering and cutting MVEA seals in addition to other diversion charges.
If you suspect someone is receiving unmetered electricity or using a fraudulent name to prevent paying the bill, call either MVEA office. Your information will remain confidential and be promptly investigated.
