KCP&L offers a whole house surge protector. They charge an additional $7.95
for the service. I had it when I lived in KC years ago, had to have it
replaced once which they did for free and nothing got hurt in the house...
Your mileage may vary...

Time for a new topic...

With lots of (APRS on topic) electronics at home, I wonder about putting in
a whole-house surge protector.  ANyone with experience there?
