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.

Water Heater

See all water heaters

Your water heater is one of the most important parts of your home, yet it is one that few people ever give much thought to. And that’s a big mistake. Why? Because it effects almost everything about your residence. The property value. The comfort. The price of your bills. Heck, it can even effect your taxes. So, next time you build, remodel or buy, start paying closer attention to the water heater!

How can a water heater possibly effect your taxes? You’d be surprised. Because many tankless water heaters are considered energy efficient, you could actually be eligible for tax breaks. Consult your tax accountant if you don’t believe it. And at the very least, you’ll save on your monthly bills.
