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.
Heat Pump Water Heater
A heat pump water heater uses electricity to move heat from one place to another, instead of generating heat directly. This makes them considerably more efficient than electric water heaters.
Heat pump water heaters generally have higher initial costs than conventional storage water heaters. However, they have lower operating costs, which offsets their purchase price. Before buying one, you should take in to account size, first hour heating, cost, and more.
Typically, a family of four can save over three hundred dollars a year by switching to a heat pump water heater.
