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.
There are two main kinds of power generators: whole house generators and portable backup generators. Whole-house generators are wired into your home’s electrical system and restore power seamlessly to your home if the power goes out. No more sitting in the dark or throwing away spoiled food from your refrigerator. Portable generators generate enough electricity to power small appliances, radios, computers or a TV. How many appliances you can operate at one time has to do with how big your generator is. Portable generators require more safety precautions while in use than whole-house generators to ensure that they run safely. A portable generator can really come in handy when the power goes out in an electrical storm, ice storm or summer brown out. At Blue Ridge Energy, we carry a selection of Generac whole house generators.
