Blue Ridge Energy received the highest honor in an awards program for America’s electric cooperatives.


It received the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Edgar F. Chesnutt Award for Best Total Communication Program. The award was for the communications campaign related to Blue Ridge Energy’s new community solar program, which was established in response to consumer requests for additional renewable energy options. The campaign was so effective that every panel in the solar array was sold in just 10 months.


“Blue Ridge Energy’s impressive understanding of their consumer and community needs is clearly evident in their marketing and communications strategy in support of this new solar project,” Scott Peterson, NRECA’s senior vice president of communications, said in a press release.


Blue Ridge Energy received the award at CONNECT ‘18, a national communications, marketing and member services conference organized by NRECA.
