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.
Note: Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy suspended disconnects, waived late fees and offered special payment plans. While Blue Ridge Energy was already extending the date of waiving disconnects and late fees until August, Gov. Cooper issued a new Executive Order 142 on May 30 outlining the same timeline. However, we’re concerned about mounting bills. If possible, we encourage everyone (including Flexpay members) to pay what you can on your energy bill to avoid accumulating a large balance at the end of this crisis. Call us at 1-800-451-5474 to set up a special payment plan or apply for assistance through these Emergency Assistance Agencies.
These are unprecedented times. We at Blue Ridge Energy understand the impact COVID-19 isolation and closings are having on our members and customers. If ever a time has called for measures above and beyond normal, now is the time. Many who’ve never had to ask for help before are struggling to provide basic necessities for their families. The magnitude of this need may not yet be fully realized.
As a cooperative with roots deeply embedded in our local communities, we’re responding to this crisis through this newly created campaign: In this Together. We’re mobilizing to distribute record-level crisis assistance funds from the Blue Ridge Energy Members Foundation, which is funded by Operation Round Up donations as well as contributions from the profits of your Propane and Fuels and RidgeLink subsidiaries
We’re inviting you to join us in raising crisis funds with your donation of any amount to the Members Foundation. Whether you can donate $1, $10 or $100, your contribution will make a difference.
The cooperative difference is about joining together to help each other. There’s never been a better time to join together. Help us answer the need today. After all, we are ALL in this together!
In this TOGETHER! Help now!
All funds will go directly to help local residents in need of crisis energy assistance.
