Surge Protectors

Meter Based Surge ProtectorSafety for Your Home or Business
Platte-Clay offers whole-house surge protection that can help you protect electrical appliances and sensitive electronic equipment against power surges. For hard-wired appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators and washing machines, PCEC offers the Tesco Surge Protector. Each device must be installed at your meter by Platte-Clay and provides complete household hard-wire protection for up to 70,000 amps. You can lease these devices for only $4.95 per month, which you may pay with your electric bill.

For your more sensitive electronic plug-in equipment such as phones, computers, DVDs, DVRs and stereos, Tesco and Platte-Clay recommend electronics-grade point-of-use surge protectors in addition to the Tesco MSA surge protection system.

The hard-wire protectors come with a limited product warranty and coverage should the equipment fail. The warranty only applies when surges enter through the electrical service entrance. Members may get a surge protector by e-mailing mail@pcec.coop or calling 628-3121 to schedule an installation.
