    I've read where some manufacturers are putting IDs on their buss bars, but I was wondering if any other manufacturers are doing anything more proactive in trying to keep the high rate of thefts down?

    Talley now has a galvanized ground bar that they are selling. I don't know what the electrical properties are, but it's pretty obvious that it's not valuable to a thief.

    $1.00 a lb for scrap #1 copper has had quite an impact on our theft problems.
