Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy has worked to assist our members during this difficult time. With the expiration of Gov. Cooper's Executive Orders 124 and 142, Blue Ridge remains committed in our efforts by continuing to suspend disconnects and waiving penalty and late fees for electric members until October. However, we encourage everyone with a past due balance (including Flexpay members) to call us by August 31 at 1-800-451-5474 to set up a special payment plan or ask us about crisis assistance from the In This Together Relief Fund.

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.
