Major Electricity Theft by Illegal Cannabis Growers

According to the Nuon Electric Company, illegal cannabis growers steal electricity in the amount of 150 million Euro annually from Dutch providers of electricity. This theft is equal to the energy consumption of 1.2 million Dutchmen. Nuon is faced with one third of the theft, the cost of which it passes on to its other clients. The company, together with the police, identifies 2,500 such growers annually. However, the Nuon spokesman said that there are many more grower thieves who are not found.
