Oncor uses new technology to discourage copper theft
Oncor Electric Delivery said Thursday it will implement a type of nanotechnology in its products that will cut down on copper wire theft.
The technology invisibly marks Oncor equipment, particularly its copper wire, so it can be identified after it has been stolen.
Oncor, the transmission business of Dallas-based TXU Corp. (NYSE:TXU), said when copper ground wires are stolen it presents a safety hazard for the thieves and Oncor employees, who can be shocked or injured.
