Power Theft

Power Theft

Power theft, also known as current diversion, is illegal and very dangerous.

Under Section 812.14 of the Florida Statutes, someone convicted of power theft can be fined $1,000 or up to three times the cost of the electricity stolen. They can also face up to a year in prison.

Attempting to steal electricity by tampering with a meter or equipment can get someone killed. It also creates a dangerous safety hazard for the public and Clay Electric employees.

The theft of electricity also affects all of the co-op's members. When someone steals electricity, they're really stealing from their neighbors and other co-op members.

Power thieves can typically afford to pay their electric bills, they just want to see if they can get away with it. Most are caught, and some of these thieves are seriously injured or killed by electrical contact accidents. If you suspect someone is stealing electricity, please call your nearest Clay Electric district office and report this illegal activity. It's not necessary to identify yourself when making a report. Thanks!
