Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy made the decision to suspend disconnects, waive late fees and offer special payment plans to assist our members and customers during this difficult time. While the decision had already been made to extend these special circumstances until August, Gov. Cooper issued a new Executive Order 142 on May 30 outlining the same timeline. We encourage everyone (including Flexpay members) to continue paying your energy bill to avoid a large balance at the end of this crisis. Call us at 1-800-451-5474 to set up a special payment plan.

20 lbs Propane Tank

See Propane and Fuels Services

The standard sized tank for most outdoor grills is a 20 lbs propane tank. You can either purchase one, or exchange your existing tank for a new one at many gas stations or hardware stores. Connection is simple. Just screw the nozzle of the hose onto the end of the tank. Turn the gas on, and light the burners.

If you use propane for more than just summer barbecues, you’ll need to look into using a bigger sized tank. Tanks come in 100 lb, 100 gallon, 500 gallon, and 1000 gallon sizes, to name a few. Most tanks can sit above ground, but the larger ones are often buried.
