Shield Your Home from Surges with Powershield

surge protection devicePeople's Electric Cooperative (PEC) wants to help make your life better by offering POWERShield which consists of 2 levels of protection: 1) at the meter base and 2) within the home in order to provide the ultimate in protection.

The first line of defense against surges is a socket device installed at your meter base. This device is designed to reduce any potentially damaging external, high-voltage spikes and surges to a “safe” level before they enter your home via the power line.

Extra protection is proved by surge suppression devices installed at outlets within your home for sensitive electronic equipment. When installed properly, these devices will protect your equipment from surges through the electrical wiring, telephone lines, and coaxial cable. Device warranties range from $250 to $50,000.

Equipment and warranty are provided by TESCO, a name trusted by cooperative members throughout the United States.

Protect your home through this program for $4.95 per month and a one-time installation fee of $50, with a 60-month lease agreement. *During March, the $50 installation fee is discounted to $25. No deposit is required for current PEC consumers who have received service during the most recent 24 months and have established good credit with the cooperative. (For those who do not meet this criteria, there is a $100 refundable security deposit required to join the program.) The outside equipment remains the property of PEC; however, the devices inside the home are yours to keep.
