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.
Blue Ridge Energy Crews Assisting Sister Cooperative Devastated by Hurricane Florence
On Wednesday, Blue Ridge Energy sent 20 line technicians and nine bucket trucks to assist in power restoration efforts for Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative (CCEC). All of CCEC's 40,000 members were left without power last weekend as Hurricane Florence devastated the co-op's service area of Carteret, Craven, Jones and Onslow counties in eastern North Carolina. The latest report Friday regarding CCEC's outages indicate that 75 percent of their members are restored with power. Blue Ridge crews joined 400 other linemen from 16 electric cooperatives who sent crews to help CCEC, which is in one of the most devastated areas from the hurricane.
