Benjamin Franklin - Lightning Rod experiment

Ever since Benjamin Franklin’s famous lightning rod experiment in early 1749, humans have had the means to protect themselves by controlling lightning strikes. But how reliable are our methods and systems at actually protecting us in situations like these? The answer is, in some cases, not reliable enough.


So is anything else reliable out there?

Yes— Early Streamer Emission Lightning Protection Systems.

We guarantee the protection from strikes at 98%.


Manufacturers of earlier traditional or “inactive” strike protection rods do not offer this guarantee. Actually, nobody else in the industry does.

How does it work? What does “active” mean?

Our unique lightning protection systems work on the Early Streamer Emission (ESE) principal discovered and patented in Europe in 70-s. The streamer system actively catches lightning bolts and redirects them to the ground spearing lives and property. Here is more info about the principal – on how contemporary ESE lightning rods work.

Why do people choose Early Streamer Emission Systems?

  1. Early streamer emission systems are proven to be reliable. We are certified and compliant with applicable European standard NFC 17.102.

Electra USA is based in Wheeling, IL – North-West Chicago suburb. ……………………………………………………….   A thundercloud consists of particles, some of which exist in a form of very small ice droplets. Small pieces of ice, more easily than large ones, are vulnerable to rising in air currents happening inside of the cloud due to convection effect. So to say, the nimble small pieces of ice, moving to the top of the clouds are touching and rubbing against large ones. Each such collision of any two pieces leads to electrification. These large ice particles become negatively charged, while small ones become positive. Over time, the positively charged small particles of cloud ice are located in the upper part i.e. at the top of the cloud and the negatively charged pieces of ice are located at the bottom i.e. at the lower part. In other words, the top of the thundercloud is positively charged, and the bottom is negatively charged. The earth is charged positively. That’s how the clouds produce electricity.
