Surge Protection

Central Electric Cooperative sells and installs Tesco meter socket surge protectors (TES240-MSA). Tesco meter socket surge protectorThe TES240MSA guards electro-mechanical “white” appliances from damaging voltage disturbances such as lightning and other problems that can occur on an electrical distribution system. Items covered, but not limited to, are refrigerators, freezers, furnace motors, washing machines and similar appliances with a motor.

We also sale Tesco panel-mounted surge protectors (TES240-R) that provide the same protection as the meter socket protector. We recommend this device when the member’s meter is not mounted on a home. The TES240-R protector should be installed by a qualified electrician.

Both protectors come with a ten-year product replacement warranty that provides members with a new protector after a surge occurs, as well as down-line appliance repair or replacement insurance from Tesco.
