Surge Protection

Lightning can be devastating on your home appliances and electronics. Destructive electrical spikes, often caused by lightning, can pass through TV, Telephone and Electrical lines into your home.

Electrical spikes may damage or even destroy your motor driven appliances and sensitive equipment.

Our Home Lightning Protection Program is designed to protect your appliances and sensitive equipment.

One installation fee and a small monthly charge added to your electric bill, covers a safety ground check and installation of protective devices.

We offer two plans:

Plan A: $175 installation charge with $10 monthly fee*

  • Meter base device

  • Cable TV/Satellite device
  • Protects most connected equipment inside the home

Plan B: $175 installation charge with $6 monthly fee*

  • Meter base device
  • All major appliances only (refrigerator, stove, washer, dryer)

"As soon as we got home, we heard a transformer blow. Within 30 minutes BREMC was out here and within another 30 they restored our power. Cannot thank these men and women enough for the jobs they do. Especially when it’s late at night and raining in 36 degree weather."


"Thanks for everything you do keeping thousands of customers in power, especially during all the snow and cold and rain. You guys are great!"


"Thanks for all the hard work!! Great job everybody!"


"Thank you for AWESOME response times and excellent service. The linemen went above and beyond!"
