    I am sure you need a whole house surge protector, not a voltage regulator.

    Then Amazon would be the fastest. 1-2 day shipping in the USA and 2 day shipping to Dom. Rep. Order today and get it by Saturday here. You spend more time searching for a good one here, and probably won't find it anyway.

    A voltage regulator is not the solution to a burned transformer. Call CDE and request new transformer. Or at least check your damaged one. Transformers can be adjusted 10% or more up or down.

    A regulator that size will weigh 50lbs. minimum. That's a hefty device to be shipping to the DR.

    Check with MegaTone in Santiago or Moca. They manufacture regulators and reducers.

    Or something more for the whole line system in - this would be pricey ?

    As CB says, a device to regulate power from the DR grid to a house full of appliances, computers & TV's is a hefty device. If importing, you'll definitely wish to have this equipment arrive via a mudanza by sea.

    1) Do not let a clueless "Dominican Electrician" wire the this equipment into your panel
    2) Your house will need to have all of the bad wiring practices corrected before any equipment such as this will offer protection as intended
    3) You'll need a "real" grounding bed which is probably not available on your property yet.
    4) An off the shelf voltage regulator is probably incapable of handling the extremely large surges from lightning.
    5) One generally cannot suppress over voltage from lightening, you need a lightning diverter for that.

    Over voltage protection is simply diverting over voltage to somewhere outside your house. You have to provide somewhere for this current to go or you are just wasting money.

    Megatone is also in Puerto Plata if that helps.
