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 Gauges

See Propane and Fuels Services

One easy way to know exactly how much propane you have left in your propane tanks is to install propane tank gauges. No more guessing, no more being in the dark. Just read your gauges from time to time and you will know exactly when it’s time for a refill. When it’s time to top off your tanks, just call your local propane company and have them come out and refill it for you. Or, if it’s a smaller tank you use for grilling, you can just take it to a gas station or hardware store and swap it out for a new one.

Some gauges even alert you if you’re having a gas leak, which is a nice added safety bonus. Most gauges have two ends. One end has a black collar that fastens into the tank. The other end connects to the propane hose from your grill. Attaching the gauge is simple and needs no tools for installation. If the needle drops, that generally means you have a gas leak. You should disconnect immediately if that is the case.
