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.

Liquid Propane

See Propane and Fuels Services

Liquid gas, also known as Liquefied Petroleum Gas is a fuel in liquid form stored under pressure, so it doesn’t turn to gas. Pressurizing propane into a liquid also lowers its temperature to around -40 F. Liquid propane is used for cooking, heating water and also homes. It is nontoxic and colorless. Because it is odorless, an odor is often added, so if there happens to be a leak, it can be detected. It’s also a safe, non-messy and affordable fuel.

And you may not realize it, but using propane helps America’s economy. About 90% of all propane is produced right here in the United States. A good chunk of the rest is produced in Mexico and Canada.
