Dale, I am fortunate that my rural electric co-op only charges $5.99 a month!  
But I chose having them provide the whole house protection because:  (1) 
located at the meter, outside the house.  (2) Clear indication if protection is 
lost (two green LEDs lit when okay).  I check it when I drive in/out of the 
property.  (3) They fix it at no cost to me.  (4) some amount of insurance 
protection, but I haven't read that literature.

I am located near the top of a high hill.  We are also the "last" house on a 
very long power line run, no other houses to share and disperse the strike past 
us.  From reading the other posts, I feel better about my decision.  I just 
wish I had initially made it when I first moved back to Arkansas.  You know, 
back BEFORE the first two costly lightning events we had prior to the surge 
installation.  ;> )

73, Steve, W5KI

Are the whole house surge superstore worth considering? If so, should I opt
for the local power company installation ($9.00/month forever) or have an
electrician install my own?
