Dry Hydrant Program

Adams Electric has created a dry hydrant manual to facilitate the proper installation of dry hydrants in rural areas. These hydrants are used by fire companies to draft water to fight fires in rural areas. Adams Electric has assisted with the installation of more than 150 dry hydrants.

To order a dry hydrant kit or parts, please contact: Stan Merrett, ETT L.L.C, 751 Moon Branch Drive, Dadeville, AL 36853. Phone: 256/307-1433. Email: smerrett@mindspring.com.

Surge Insurance

It used to be your only defense against electronic-damaging power surges and over-voltages was homeowner’s insurance.  Adams Electric is changing that with SurgeHELP.

SurgeHELP provides residential repair and replacement protection for damages resulting from electrical surges and over-voltages. SurgeHelp will cover any electrical damage (up to your selected level of coverage) due to an electrical surge entering your home over your lines. The program is optional for members who chose to pay for it.

Surge Protection

Power protection for your home and business

Your cooperative has affordable solutions to power surges that can enter your home through electric, phone, cable or satellite dish lines.

Power surges can enter your home over phone lines, television antenna lines and electric lines, damaging appliances and sensitive electronics. Besides replacement cost, homeowners also suffer inconvenience and lost time when a surge causes damage. Adams Electric offers solutions to those problems, solutions that are affordable and comprehensive.
