Surge Protection Program

Missouri Rural Electric offers its members a line of protection products for lightning, and power surges. These surges can damage the appliances and electronic equipment our members depend on for comfort and convenience

Surges can be caused by a variety of events such as lightning, cars colliding with utility poles, tree limbs falling on electric lines, construction work and even disturbances transmitted through telephone and cable lines. These surges can create a number of problems that are often tough to diagnose and expensive to repair. It pays to plan ahead and be prepared for these disturbances. For the program to work, the circuits containing surge protection must have a three-wire grounded circuit as well as meet all local and national electrical code requirements.

Our surge protection equipment comes from Sycom Surge Inc. Each surge protector comes with a warranty for the product as well as a warranty protecting the attached appliances. Sycom offers a wide variety of plug-in surge suppressors to protect service panels, computers, TVs, satellite equipment, telephones, etc. Stop by the office to check out the display of these devices as well as the member’s current price or click on the link above to view Sycom products and warranty information.
