Reporting suspected theft of electricity or gas

What do I do if I suspect the theft of electricity or gas?

  • Energy theft is when a gas or electricity meter is tampered with so that it does not accurately record the amount of energy used.

  • This is against the law and can be extremely dangerous.

  • Energy theft also increases costs, which in turn results in higher bills for customers.

If you suspect energy theft is occurring, it can be reported by contacting the UK Revenue Protection Association (UKRPA) on 028 9575 7206
