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, Gov. Cooper also issued a new Executive Order 142 on May 30. 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 or ask us about crisis assistance from the In This Together Relief Fund.

Fireplaces Electric

See all electric fireplaces

When the cold weather comes, do you start to avoid the mailbox, afraid of what the heating bill might be? It may be time for you to consider putting fireplaces electric in your home. Electric fireplaces have multiple things going for them in addition to cutting your heating costs. With an electric fireplace, you can heat only the parts of your home that you are actually using. Then you can turn down the thermostat and as a result, save money.

All it takes to operate an electric fireplace is a standard 120volt wall socket. And installation is a snap. Minutes after taking it out of the box, you can have it up and running. Electric fireplaces are ideal if you live in a big city. A lot of metropolitan areas do not allow operating fireplaces in small apartments or other dwellings. But that does not apply to fireplaces electric! And because the actual fireplace does not get hot, you can even have one in your children’s bedrooms, and you don’t have to worry about them burning themselves.
