Tesla owner acquitted of stealing electricity for his electric car

A Swedish entrepreneur has been acquitted in the district court, even though he was proven to have stolen electricity from a private home when he wanted to charge his Tesla on a summer day in 2022.

A Swedish Tesla owner has been acquitted of stealing electricity, even though that's exactly what he did on a summer day in 2022.

This is written by the Swedish media BT .

The man, who later explained to the police that he thought he was parking in a public parking space, was in fact parking on private land. Here he set his Tesla to charge.

However, only 20 minutes passed before charging was interrupted, and an angry homeowner demanded payment and compensation for the electricity. Electricity costs, the house owner thought, 25 kroner. While he wanted DKK 250 in other compensation.

To the police, the Tesla owner must have admitted that he parked 'unfortunately'. At the same time, however, he denies having done anything illegal, as he thought the parking space and therefore the charger was publicly accessible.

The case was later settled with acquittal of the Tesla owner in the district court, because the family in the house had meanwhile withdrawn the report. However, when the police had managed to press charges, the case was briefly settled.

– I think we are meeting on the wrong day. We both feel that it was perhaps a slight overreaction, says the Tesla owner about the situation to BT.

However, not all electric car owners get away with stealing electricity as easily. For example, a 78-year-old Polestar 2 owner has been convicted of stealing electricity from a municipality. Strom, he obviously didn't think he should pay for. Read more about it here .

Another Swede has been sentenced to 30 daily fines totaling 6,000 kroner because he also stole electricity for his electric car. He deliberately stole the electricity from a housing association that had a socket in a parking garage.
