Every year there are more than 20 million lightning strikes, but it only takes one to cause a damaging electrical surge in your home. And, lightning strikes aren't even the most common cause of electrical surges.

We've partnered with HomeServe, a leading administrator of home repair programs, to offer the Surge HELP® Plan to provide coverage for all of your electronics and appliances if they become damaged during an electrical surge. There is no device to buy or install.

Plan features:

  • Whole house surge coverage – Every appliance and electronic device in your home is covered up to your coverage limit. See below.
  • Repair or replace guarantee – If your surge-damaged item can’t be repaired, we’ll reimburse you for a new one up to your coverage limit.
  • No additional bills to pay – The program cost will be added to your monthly SCE&G bill.

NOTE: This program provides monetary compensation for repair or replacement only. It does not provide a device that prevents or protects items from electrical surges. Even with this program, we still recommend using surge protection devices to stop a surge before it can cause damage – especially on devices like computers where there is the potential for data loss.
