To report an outage, call
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.
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.
Our School Partners:
Blue Ridge Energy is currently working with school systems in Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany counties to develop school and business partnerships throughout our entire service area.
