Surge Suppression Programcircuit board

Our customers are increasingly aware of the need to protect valuable computer and home entertainment equipment from the damage lightning and power surges might cause. Athens Utilities features a Whole-Home Surge Suppression program that includes a meter base device and/or individual plug-in devices.


While no surge protector can provide 100 percent protection against a direct lightning strike, a surge suppression system can offer another defense to keep your home electronics and major appliances protected from damaging lightning and high-voltage surges.


The cost for monthly service and systems you can purchase are listed below.
