To report an outage, call
Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy has worked to assist our members during this difficult time. With the expiration of Gov. Cooper's Executive Orders 124 and 142, Blue Ridge remains committed in our efforts by continuing to suspend disconnects and waiving penalty and late fees for electric members until October. However, we encourage everyone with a past due balance (including Flexpay members) to call us by August 31 at 1-800-451-5474 to set up a special payment plan or ask us about crisis assistance from the In This Together Relief Fund.
Even before you see that your neighbor’s lights are on during a power outage, it’s no secret who has a power generator because they are so loud you can barely hear yourself think. But luckily you can now buy quiet generators. Quiet generators have all the same multiple advantages of a regular generator, but with one major difference. They aren’t deafening. Put an end to sitting in the dark, either shivering in the cold during the winter, or sweating in the hot and humid summer. Funny how you never seem to lose power in mild, 70 degree and sunny weather.
With a quiet generator, you can have power restored to your home or business without interrupting your busy life. No one has time to lose and to have to stop and figure out how long it’s going to be until it is restored. Okay, maybe you’ll have to pay a touch more for a quiet generator, but it is well worth every extra penny. Put an end to pricy and lengthy hotel stays that add up in a hurry. Not to mention the exorbitant cost of eating at restaurant after restaurant until power comes back online. Everyone enjoys eating out, but it gets old when you don’t have a choice in the matter.
