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 Water Heater
Gas water heaters have been around even before electricity was invented. When deciding if a propane water heater is right for you, it’s important to understand its many advantages. Propane water heaters heat water effectively and efficiently. They heat water much more quickly than electric water heaters and are less expensive to run in the long term. Propane water heaters are usually well insulated, maintaining water temperature with less energy. Modern gas water heaters are safer than ever.
The basic difference of propane water heaters is the heating is done gradually, which helps conserve energy. Use the hot water immediately, and you’ll save a great deal of heat energy. Consumers are able to control the rate of heating.
