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.

Modern Fireplaces

See all Fireplaces

Fireplaces have been a central part of the American home for centuries. In recent years, modern fireplaces have really become a popular alternative. Corner fireplaces, portable fireplaces, gas logs and wood burning inserts are just a few examples of modern fireplaces. The biggest difference, is just ease of use. There’s no more chopping wood, stacking wood and bringing in wood when it’s cold outside. There’s also no soot or shoveling ash.

Modern fireplaces are just a snap to use. Many of them turn on and off with a literally push of a button. Heck, some of them even come with a remote control so that you can turn your fireplace on and off from halfway across the room! Many advances have been made to fireplaces over the years, but what hasn’t changed is that the fireplace is still a gathering place for friends and family.
