How to Discourage Electricity Theft by Households
One way households may steal electricity is by stealing from the building supply. Households may tamper with wiring and hook up directly to your building's metered electricity supply. A resident who does this taps into power that you're paying for. Another way to steal electricity is directly from other households. In this case, a household may tap into a neighboring household's metered electricity supply. While this type of tampering may not happen often at your building, it can cause big problems when it does.
