Energy theft is a serious crime that results in higher costs passed down to customers. Energy theft can include tampering with service connections or meters or committing fraud by establishing service with false or stolen identities. (Another dangerous crime is copper theft.)
Energy theft does more than just increase the cost of electricity: tampering with electric meters and wiring can result in serious fires, injury and even death. It poses serious danger to the thief, to people living nearby and to Westar employees.
