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.

Propane Furnace

If you don’t already have a propane furnace, you may consider changing to one. There are several bonuses to having one. A propane furnace is very energy efficient. One big reason is because they’re designed to avoid wasting heat. They are also healthier for our environment, because they emit less carbon than other fuels. Because they burn cleaner, propane furnaces often last longer than other types of furnaces.

If you do decide to install a propane furnace, be sure you hire a trained professional to do it for you. This is not a do-it-yourself type project. Yes, that will set you back some money, but in the long run, the savings will more than make up for it.
