Lightning Arrestor Program
Thunderstorms consisting of lightning strikes are normal occurrences in Missouri. In fact, they occur between 40 and 50 days per year.
Some people discover they are more vulnerable to lightning strikes simply because of their location. In addition, grounding plays a critical role in protection against these strikes.
Citizens Electric will install a VariStar Storm Trapper High Energy secondary lightning arrestor at a member's residence. The installation will occur at the weather head.
Citizens Electric will supply, but not install, the lightning arrestor. It should be fastened inside the panel box with a qualified electrician doing the installation work.
Although Citizens Electric cannot imply any warranties, we highly recommend these devices and have seen them work in a number of applications.
Single phase: $39 for arrestor, $63 installed
3 phase, 3 wire: $42 for arrestor, $66 installed
3 phase, 4 wire: $48 for arrestor, $72 installed
