Protect Your Investment - Break the Cycle of Theft.
Utilities are all too familiar with the costs involved in repairing damage caused by copper theft – often reaching millions of dollars and dozens of man-hours for each substation. Operations and Loss Prevention teams now have a way to get criminals off the street—and out of their substations—so utilities can focus on revenue-generating activities.
Southwire’s Proof Positive® family of products was designed for utility applications where copper is frequently stolen.
Utilities are choosing Proof Positive® Cable because:
- One outer strand and the center strand are tin-coated for easy identification by both recyclers and thieves. As word spreads future theft will be deterred.
- Center strand is laser-etched with serial numbers and license codes at 1 foot intervals. Upon sale, the etched codes and shipping information are recorded in a database at http://www.2idcu.com/.
- Recyclers and law enforcement can verify rightful ownership in seconds and take action.
- Proof Positive® Copper installs the same way as standard bare copper or copper-clad steel conductors.
