Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative understands that proper operation of the equipment in a facility is essential to the efficiency of your business
Even a momentary interruption can mean significant losses to a business through lost production. We not only understand, but strive toward no interruptions with ongoing proactive measures toward that end.
Blue Ridge’s commitment to system reliability is manifested through our ongoing maintenance, planning and use of technology.
Our system maintenance efforts start in substations where the protective equipment is regularly tested and calibrated for optimum operation. Mechanical devices are tested and immediately repaired of any suspected abnormalities. Transformers and other equipment are scanned annually with an infrared camera to detect potential problems.
