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.

Tankless Hot Water Heaters

See all water heaters

Did you know that tankless hot water heaters can actually help you on Tax Day? It’s true. Tankless water heaters are more efficient, and therefore are eligible for federal tax credits. Just one of the many advantages of installing a tankless water heater in your home. Talk to your tax accountant for more details. But there are other advantages beyond tax benefits.

Department of Energy findings show that tankless gas water heaters save you just over one hundred dollars every year. That really adds up considering they often last nearly twenty years. Electric water heaters save just a little more than $40 a year. Again, not huge savings, but every little bit helps, right?
