Surge & Lightning Protection

What You Don’t Know About Surge and Lightning Protection Will Shock You!

Lightning and power surges can strike at any moment and can destroy or cause expensive damage to your sensitive electronics and appliances. Being prepared for these unexpected surges and spikes can make a big difference in protecting your appliances and equipment.

Lightning is often the cause of power surges, but other factors such as birds, squirrels, and trees interfering with power lines can cause a power surge. Construction work, demand fluctuations in your home, auto accidents involving utility poles, and even disturbances transmitted through telephone and cable lines can have the same effect.

We want to help shield your electronics and appliances with our affordable surge protection program. Let us start protecting your home electronics and appliances today by installing a Surge Suppressor at your power entrance (weather head). For more information and prices, call a Member Services Representative at your local Prentiss County Electric Power Association office, Baldwyn 662-365-7161, Booneville 662-728-4433.

You might want to also purchase Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) units for personal computers and purchase power strips with surge protection built-in at your local electronics store for other electronic appliances. The surge protectors come in different sizes. The higher the Joules Rating the better at stopping surges.
