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.

Member Advisory Committees

Four district Member Advisory Committees (MAC) are made up of at least 10 members of the cooperative appointed by the Board of Directors. These committees meet regularly and serve as a sounding board for the cooperative. They also provide input on programs and services.

Members serve three-year terms and are eligible for an additional three-year term. Each fall, a selection committee makes recommendations to the Board for new MAC members to fill any vacancies.

Due to COVID-19, the next MAC meeting will be a virtual meeting on August 20. Additional details will be forthcoming.
