How do I protect appliances in my house from power surges?

Use properly rated surge protectors to provide a defense against power spikes and surges. A lightning strike or downed power line can send a surge of electricity through your home, potentially damaging appliances, computers, TVs, and other electronic equipment.

Electric surge suppression is available for PEC members' homes through a convenient program called POWERShield. Visit our Surge Protection page for details.
