What should I do if I suspect energy theft?

Energy theft, or meter tampering, is where someone deliberately alters their gas or electricity meter so it doesn’t record their usage properly.

It’s a criminal offence which can lead to a fine and 5 years in prison, but more importantly it’s extremely dangerous. Tampering with a home’s energy supply can put the safety of people in the property and surrounding area at risk.
