To report an outage, call
Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy has worked to assist our members during this difficult time. With the expiration of Gov. Cooper's Executive Orders 124 and 142, Blue Ridge remains committed in our efforts by continuing to suspend disconnects and waiving penalty and late fees for electric members until October. However, we encourage everyone with a past due balance (including Flexpay members) to call us by August 31 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.
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.
