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.

Hotwater Heaters

See all water heaters

Hotwater heaters provide reliable and affordable hot water to your home, business, or both. Two of the most common types of energy used to heat your water are propane and electric. Which is right for you? There’s no right answer. Each have pluses and minuses. Do yourself a favor and take the time to ask around and read up and decide which matches your needs best.

Residential hotwater heaters usually hold up to 80 gallons of hot water. You can adjust the temperature using a control on the unit. Hotwater heaters are usually housed in the attic, basement or garage. Next time you take a nice, hot shower, don’t forget the work that went into making it possible.
