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.

Fireplace Decorations

See all Fireplaces

You can tell a lot about a person by what their fireplace decorations look like. An outdoorsy person might have lots of flowers, or framed pictures of fern leaves. A sports lover could have decorations of their favorite team—team pennants, bobble heads, autographed football cards, or a home run ball. If you’re artistic, you might have paintings or sculptures by up and coming artists.

Whatever your sense of design and personal décor is, there’s something for each and every person. Candles in all shapes, sizes and scents are very popular with many homeowners. Clocks, both old-fashioned and digital also add style while also serving a practical use. Decorative pottery and vases also bring elegance and beauty to any mantle. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things.
