    We’re backing Crimestoppers’ ‘stayenergysafe’ campaign


    26 July 2018


    We’ve joined with energy companies and regulator Ofgem to support Crimestoppers’ ‘stayenergysafe’ campaign.

    The campaign, led by the national charity, aims to highlight the dangers of energy theft and help people identify the signs of this illegal activity.

    Energy theft occurs when people steal energy to avoid paying for their usage. Tampering with or bypassing a gas meter is extremely dangerous. In addition, the cost of energy theft affects us all as it increases the cost of our energy bills by an extra £20 each year. Find out more in stayenergysafe's infographic.

    It’s important to report signs of energy theft to keep you, and those around you, safe. Click here to find more information about how to spot the signs of energy theft.

    To anonymously report energy theft, call Crimestoppers on 0800 023 2777 or report it online at stayenergysafe.co.uk.

    If you smell gas or have urgent concerns about gas safety, please call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999.
