Sabah Electricity offers incentive to informants in meter tampering cases

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) has approved a policy which allows incentives to be given to informants, in a bid to overcome electricity theft and meter tampering.

“However, the incentive is for information on commercial and industrial meter tampering only, not domestic users," SESB senior general manager (assets management) Norhizami Abu Hasan said in a statement on Thursday (March 11).

“Informants" also applies only to members of the public and not SESB staff, whether permanent or contract workers, he added.

“The incentive is 5% of SESB's claim against the offenders, to a maximum of RM1,000, ” he said.

Anyone with information on such meter tampering may report directly to SESB's Curbing of Electricity Stealing Team (PTKE) at 088- 282778,088-282779 or 088-282771.

Alternatively, they may deal directly with the relevant SESB zone, area or branch managers, he said.

“Any of these three will then channel it to the PTKE Secretariat for the next course of action, ” he added, while assuring informants of confidentiality.

According to the statement, payment of the incentive will be made after a meter tampering case has been proven and settled, and SESB has obtained the full claim from the offender.
