People’s Powerline | October 2016


POWERShield Perks Continued from page 1


meter base and 2) within the home in order to provide the ultimate in protection.


The fi rst line of defense against surges is a socket device installed at your meter base. This device is designed to reduce any potentially damaging external, high-voltage spikes and surges to a “safe” level before they enter your home via the power line.


Extra protection is provided by surge suppression devices installed at outlets within your home for sensitive electronic equipment. When installed properly, these devices will protect your equipment from surges through the electrical wiring, telephone lines and coaxial cable. Device warranties range from $250 to $50,000.


Equipment and warranty are provided by TESCO, a name trusted by cooperative customers throughout the United States.


Protect your home through this program for $4.95 per month and a one time installation fee of $50, with a 60 month lease agreement. *During October, the $50 installation fee is discounted to $25. No deposit is required for current PEC consumers who have received service during the most recent 24 months and have established good credit with the cooperative. (For those who do not meet this criteria, there is a $100 refundable security deposit required to join the program.) The outside equipment remains the property of PEC; however, the devices inside the home are yours to keep.

Energy Effi ciency Tip of the Month


Everytime you open the oven door to check on a dish, the temperature inside is reduced by as much as 25 degrees,


increasing cooking time--and energy use! Try using the oven light instead.

Don’t let electrical hazards PLAY IT SAFE


Haunt your Halloween


of the year. But don’t make yours fraught with danger. Here are some safety reminders:


H


• As you’re decorating, make sure you check for cracked sockets, frayed, loose or bare wires, and loose connections.

• Fasten all outdoor lights securely to trees and other fi rm supports. Do not use nails or tacks that could puncture insulating cords and damage wires.


• Make sure decorative lighting is well-ventilated, protected from weather, and remains a safe distance from anything fl ammable like dry leaves and shrubs. Do not coil extension cords while in use or tuck under rugs or drapes.


• Make sure all outdoor electrical lights and decorations are plugged into an outlet protected with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). If your outlets aren’t equipped with GFCIs, have an


electrician install them or buy a GFCI adapter plug. Don’t overload outlets with too many extension cords and strands of lights.


• Keep power cords off walkways and porches that trick-or-treaters may use. You don’t want them to trip.


• Leave the porch light on for trick- or-treaters, and be sure to turn out all spooky lights and decorations before leaving home or going to bed. This will also save energy.
