Budget Billing

Blue Ridge Energies offers a Budget Billing Program designed to give participating customers set monthly payments (interest free) and the convenience of “auto fill” delivery service.  (See program eligibility requirements listed below.)

HOW DOES BUDGET BILLING WORK?

Budget Billing allows customers to make the same payment 11 months of the year and “even up” in the 12th month*. Working together, we review your energy usage patterns and current cost of fuel to determine your annual fuel expenses. We divide this amount by 11 to determine your monthly payment. In the 12th month*, we “even up” your account. You would pay the remaining balance, or if you’ve used less than expected, we credit your account or issue a check if the amount is over $150.

*While you may begin the budget program any month during the year, the budget out month will be in June. Therefore if you sign up any month other than June, you will still budget out the following June regardless of how many months have passed. After the first year, you would then be on the 12 month (June to June) budget cycle.

WILL MY PAYMENT EVER CHANGE?

We understand you may have changes in your heating system or usage, so your payment can be adjusted at any time if it’s set too low or too high.

WHO CAN SIGN UP?

All current or new residential customers of Blue Ridge Energies purchasing any heating fuels we offer: propane, fuel oil, kerosene. Subject to credit approval.

WHAT IF I HAVE A CURRENT BALANCE WITH BLUE RIDGE ENERGIES?

In order to participate in the budget billing program, your account balance must be "0".

IS THERE A FEE?

No, as a Budget Billing customer there are no monthly finance charges (unless your payment is late, at which time all regular late fees and terms apply.)

ELIGIBILTY REQUIREMENTS:

  • Account must be current prior to beginning the program and remain in good standing. 
  • Credit approval required.
  • A customer may be removed from the program if required payments are not made within terms.
  • "Autofill" delivery status
