Your Home Electrical System: What’s Yours, What’s Ours

Posted: June 2, 2022 at 10:40 am

Following Hurricane Irma in 2017, a few Peace River Electric Cooperative members were surprised to learn that the repair of some of their home’s electrical components is their responsibility. In fact, the National Electrical Safety Code does not allow our lineworkers to restore your electric service if your home can not safely accept power.

If your home’s weatherhead, service bracket, riser, meter socket or any related components are damaged, a qualified electrician must make repairs before your home can be reconnected. Unfortunately, these repairs can be quite costly. Are you prepared?

PRECO has selected HomeServe to offer our members optional Exterior Electrical Line Coverage for a low monthly cost. If your home’s exterior electrical components need repair, simply call HomeServe’s repair hotline. An account specialist will collect homeowner information and ask a local contractor to contact you to schedule a visit.
