Meter Tampering

Meter Tampering is a Crime.

If you know of or suspect that someone has tampered with their electric meter, please report it to South Plains Electric 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 SPEC policy and reported to law enforcement officials. 

​If you know of or suspect someone of meter tampering, please report it to SPEC at 806-775-7766. Electricity use that goes unbilled or unpaid increases the cost of electricity for every paying member-- including you.
