Surge Protection

Central Electric Cooperative sells and installs Brooks Utility Products meter socket surge protectors (MBSA-4J-180). The Brooks 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.

Our surge protector comes with a fifteen-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 Brooks Utility Products.
