IMPOSTERS Going Door to Door

Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. (NPEI) is warning residents to be aware of people going door-to-door claiming to be employees of the utility.

Just this week, we have received numerous reports of individuals telling homeowners that their air conditioning units, furnaces and/or water heaters needed to be inspected or asking them to do a survey about their water usage. These imposters are telling our consumers that they are employees of NPEI and are there to inspect their equipment and make sure they are getting all the government energy credits they are entitled to.

Please note these are not Niagara Peninsula Energy Employees and be cautious. If you do suspect someone is impersonating an NPEI representative and have encountered that person, you can call the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
