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.

Gaslog

See all gas logs

On those raw, wintry days and nights, there’s no better way to battle the cold weather than a gaslog fireplace. And these days, they look as realistic as ever. Ceramic refractory gas logs have really improved in the realism department. A lot of them are made by hand and also painted by hand to look really realistic. You can even choose what kind of wood you want the logs to look like.

A big advantage of having gas logs is the overall convenience of them. Not only can you use a remote control, you can also buy timers, blowers and fans, and also thermostats to help keep the heat at steady levels. There are a couple of different ignition options to choose from. There is the manual option where you light it with a match. Other options include remote controlled, electronic ignition and standing pilot light.
