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 Tank Gauge

See Propane and Fuels Services

So that you always know exactly how much propane is left in your tank, install a propane tank gauge. It goes between the fuel line and tank of your grill, or other devices that you are using with propane. There’s nothing worse than getting caught with not enough propane when you are barbecuing outside, or using it for another purpose.

Not all gauges are the same, but most have a dial that shows the different levels — high, low and refill. They can fit propane grills, patio heaters and other appliances that run on propane. They are inexpensive and can be found at most hardware stores around town.
