As of Oct. 1, 2016, meter readings are no longer required, thanks to Kenergy’s new metering system.

Meter tampering

Meter tampering is a criminal violation of the law. It reads: “When the utility has discovered evidence that by fraudulent or illegal means a customer has obtained unauthorized service or has diverted the service for unauthorized use or has obtained service without same being properly measured, the service to the customer may be discontinued without notice. The utility shall not be required to restore service until the customer has complied with all rules of the utility and regulations of the Kentucky Public Service Commission and the utility has been reimbursed for the estimated amount of the service rendered and the cost to the utility incurred by reason of fraudulent use.” Kenergy uses a number of methods for the detection of the fraudulent or illegal use of electricity.
