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.

Amish Fireplace

What the heck is an Amish fireplace anyway? Glad you asked. They are basically a fancy space heater. The mantels are made from wood, and yes, indeed they are often made by Amish workers. Generally, the heaters are made overseas in China and other countries.

There are many advantages to an Amish fireplace. First of all, it can save you money by reducing your heating bills. How? By doing what is called “zone heating.” It’s when you heat the room you’re in and turn down the heat in the rest of the house.

This stove provides the beauty and ambiance of a traditional fireplace and it's perfect for any size room.
