Copper Theft Targeting Co-op Lines

A&N Electric Cooperative, like other electric utilities, is experiencing an issue with copper theft in the area. Copper theft is a serious problem in our community that jeopardizes public safety and can lead to severe injury or even death.

Recently thieves have been targeting neutral distribution lines in Accomack County. The method used to remove the copper wire from the cooperative’s distribution poles is extremely dangerous. The thefts can also lead to electric service reliability issues.
