Power Quality/Equipment Protection
It is the customer's responsibility to protect sensitive electronic equipment within their premises from external electrical events caused by storms, fallen power lines, or faulty equipment from a nearby home or business. IFP has a program that can help.
We can also take steps to identify the source of recurring problems or power quality issues. Please call 612-8526 for more information about the Surge Arrester Program.
The building must receive its electricity service from Idaho Falls Power.
Idaho Falls Power will install and maintain a meter socket surge arrester at the electric meter outside the customer's home or business upon receipt of a signed agreement form.
$4 per month for each residential account.
$7 per month for each commercial account.
This fee is assessed on the customer's utility bill.
Customer may terminate the service at any time by notifying Idaho Falls Power; however, a $100 termination fee will be assessed if cancelled within two years of the installation date. There is no termination fee after this period.
UTILITY RIGHT OF INSPECTION
Utility shall have the right to inspect the surge arrester during normal business hours, or during an emergency.
