Know how to recognize us

Our line mechanics, forestry workers, meter readers, service technicians and other employees as well as our contractors may visit your home or neighborhood from time to time.

Unfortunately, criminals sometimes pose as our workers in an attempt to gain access to homes.

To ensure your safety, please check for ID. All of our employees and contractors wear photo identification badges. If the employee does not have an ID or if you have questions, call us at 800-242-9137 before allowing anyone access to your home.

Many of our workers wear a uniform, clothing or hard hat that features our logo. Some do not. Whether they have clothing with a logo or not, always ask for ID.

If you believe you have been victimized by someone posing as a We Energies representative, contact your local police and report it. We will cooperate with their investigation.

A picture of an authentic ID would be helpful in this post. There is a lot of WE Energies work going on in Tosa right now and we've been informed that they will need to test the new gas lines from inside our homes after the work is complete.

We do not publish images of our IDs, which could make it easy for someone to copy it. We urge customers to verify identity of our employees by calling us.
