To report an outage, call
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.
Hot Water Heaters
Hot water heaters are not something we have to buy very often, so many people may not know what to look for. When choosing a new hot water heater for your house, be sure you pick one that will offer ample hot water, but will do it in an energy efficient manner.
Your first decision when choosing should be, electric or propane? Both fuel sources have advantages and disadvantages. It is very important that you do the legwork to research and educate yourself on which is right for you and your home. It might also be helpful to talk to your plumber or your local hardware store owner. They have a wealth of knowledge and could help you decide.
