Copper Theft Deterrent

Copper thieves have become bolder, causing more than US$60 million in losses annually. Thefts account for 450,000 minutes of outage time annually and more than 30 deaths. Tech Products, Inc. has teamed up with NW Electric Power Co-Op, Inc. to produce vandal resistant, long–lasting signage that will outline the consequences of copper theft. Using Tech Products, Inc.’s unique sign product, Everlast, the electric substations are armed with a powerful message to deter criminals. Everlast has been designed to withstand UV fading for over 40 years, bullets pass through with little effect and graffiti can be easily wiped off.
