Lightning can strike anywhere at any time. Meter socket surge protectors are the first line of defense for protecting homes against power surges from strikes that directly hit the distribution lines. Since lightning can enter a home through a direct or near strike, Power and Communications recommend customers also install outlet protectors such as wall-socket or strip surge protectors on interior outlets to provide additional protection for 120-volt appliances, such as household appliances, computers, and other electronic devices
