In response to COVID-19, the utility urges all customers to use its online and phone-based customer service options or drive-through lanes at its 2600 Boones Creek Road offices.
In addition, BrightRidge is extending drive-through and customer service call center hours to 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.
“We pride ourselves as a company in providing face-to-face customer support,” CEO Jeff Dykes said. “However, we feel it is critical to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers by closing the walk-in lobby.”
BrightRidge features three drive through lanes at its Boones Creek facility to accept payments for customer convenience. If customers are used to making payments at a local bank, these facilities are still accepting payments under the existing guidelines.
Additional services outside of payment options are also offered online or through phone support, including engineering services which may be needed by contractors, builders and residential customers alike.
“We understand the many challenges the COVID-19 outbreak presents for all of us,” Dykes said. “To assist our electric and broadband customers who may be struggling with temporary financial hardship, we have suspended service disconnects. We encourage customers to contact customer service to discuss payment arrangements.”
Customer service can be reached by calling BrightRidge at 952-5000. Customer service will be available by phone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays.
