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 Mantel Shelf

See all Hearths & Fireplaces

A fireplace mantel shelf can really add a beautiful touch to any living room or den. It’s like the final cherry on top of your design look. They are designed to look like a solid mantel, but are lighter, and also have a lighter price tag. They come in all different sizes, shapes, stain colors and types of materials used. They are not difficult to install yourself, or you can hire someone to do it for you. It really only requires the shelf and some brackets.

And mantel shelves aren't just for fireplaces. You can choose any area of your home that needs a little more storage, or an added bit of décor. Buying and installing a new mantel shelf enhances the look of your home’s fireplace. Mantel shelves don’t take up as much space as regular mantels, and are also much more affordable.
