Surge Stopper


Surge Stopper
Florida is known as the "Lightning Capital of the World". Protect your valuable equipment from damaging electrical surges.
SurgeStopper™ is a meter based surge suppressor offered by Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative to our members to help protect their homes or business.

Surges are caused by many different events. Lightning is the most common problem, but accidents involving power poles, or small animals contacting power line equipment can also create surges causing damage to sensitive electronic equipment and costly down time for your business.

SurgeStopper™ provides the highest measure of protection against indirect lightning strikes available on the market today!

Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative is offering our Member/Owners the SurgeStopper™ for the low price of $6 per month* with a one-time installation fee of $40. This charge will be applied directly to your monthly statement. Each SurgeStopper™ is installed by WREC's trained personnel.

Not Just Protection - It's Peace of Mind!

SurgeStopper™ is backed by a fantastic, $500,000 aggregate, 15-year product and appliance, peace-of-mind warranty. SurgeStopper™ will pay $5,000 (per appliance) toward the repair or replacement of any large, motor-driven appliance or equipment (such as washer, dryer or air conditioning compressor) in your home that is damaged from a high-voltage surge that passes through SurgeStopper™.
