Tapping into Municipal Electric Grid for Use in Religious Mournin

question| Is it permissible to bypass government-installed electricity meters and tap directly into the municipal electricity grid in order to power religious mourning ceremonies and other such religious events?
answer| If the direct connection to the electric grid is legally authorized, it is unproblematic, but otherwise, it is impermissible and renders those who are responsible canonically accountable.
