SurgeDefender™ is a surge protection program administered by Georgia Power. The SurgeDefender™ device is a meter-based Underwriters Listed (UL) surge protector which is installed at the electric meter by a licensed independent electrical contractor.
Power strips aren't enough to protect your home's motor-driven appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers and air conditioners. Our surge protection device provides your home with a first line of defense against lightning-related or other damaging surges.
SurgeDefender™ is a voluntary program. You can stay on the program as long as or as short as you wish. You may terminate your program at anytime and the monthly charges on your electric bill will stop on your next billing cycle; however, we encourage customers to try the program for at least 24 months and experience the benefits year round.
