New Service Applications

To receive service from Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative, the consumer must apply for membership.  New members may be required to pay a deposit, membership fee and any other applicable fees at the time of application.  To obtain service for a new structure, proper county permits and inspection are required before power is connected.  The procedure for obtaining temporary service, such as power for building a house, is the same as applying for new service.  Click here to view the new service installation specs.  A valid county permit is also required.
