If my electricity goes off, will the Surge Guard Meter-Based SPD help?

No, the SPD does not provide backup power nor will it prevent power outages. It is designed only to help prevent power line surges that could cause damage to appliances and equipment within your home. However, the Surge Guard program offers UPS systems that can provide backup power for critical point-of-use applications.

How long will the Surge Guard MB-SPD last?

The number, duration and intensity of surges that the device sees over its lifetime determines the lifespan of a surge protection device. However, if the Surge Guard MB-SPD fails, Palmetto Electric will replace it free of charge as long as you continue to pay the monthly service fee.
