Meter Tampering is a Crime

paid for by the members of URECC!
If you know of or suspect that someone has tampered with their electric meter, please report it to Upshur Rural immediately.

Breaking a meter seal, opening a meter base, removing a meter, or altering an entrance cable in any manner is considered "meter tampering." Meter tampering is extremely dangerous and can result in electrical shock or even death. It is also illegal.

Anyone caught tampering with a meter or other cooperative equipment will be charged according to Upshur Rural policy and reported to Law Enforcement officials. 

If you know of or suspect someone of meter tampering, please report it to Upshur Rural at 903-843-2536. Electricity use that goes unbilled or unpaid increases the cost of electricity for every paying member-- including you.
