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.

School Partners

Blue Ridge Energy is proud of our school and business partnerships with Collettsville ElementaryWilliam Lenoir Middle School and Horizons Elementary School.

Each year, Blue Ridge Energy and the principals of these schools plan a course of action that creates a bond between the students and teachers and Blue Ridge Energy. We believe this relationship helps in a variety of ways including attendance, reading, and even behavior. Additionally, we strive to demonstrate the importance of being involved in the community.

Whether it is an ice cream party for perfect attendance or a bushel of apples for the teachers, we want to show the students, teachers and the entire school that we care about their success and their future.

Our school business partnership is a two-way street. Employees of Blue Ridge Energy enjoy cards and letters from students and even performances from chorus groups, both of which helps students develop social and communications skills.
