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.
Gas generators can really help out when you’re in a pinch. Snow storm, electrical storm, or hurricane knock out your power for an extended amount of time? Fire up the generator, and never skip a beat in electrical output. Stop throwing away spoiled food because of loss of power to your fridge. With a gas generator, your life will not be interrupted just because your electrical service is.
Sure, there is a small investment required for a gas generator, but you have to ask yourself, “Can I afford not to own one?” Let’s look at the numbers for a minute. Even with one week of no power, the hotel bills and eating out costs will put a significant dent in your bank account. And some people simply can’t afford a hotel, instead, having to sleep in their home with no heat or air conditioning. Depending on how severe the weather is outside, that’s either not pleasant, or downright dangerous.
