That's a substation and they can't afford to have security there all the time. Also this happens a lot of places sadly :-(

Yeah ours was stripped a few times in the past. CPF has had to step in to keep it safe.

Happened during daytime yesterday but ours tripped only last night as a result. Apparantly at least 3 substations were vandalized like that

same here, didn't have power majority of the weekend,
becoming a regular thing now, with ageing infrastructure and people stealing copper from the substation

Substations need better security
