Blue Ridge Power Agency

There are currently 9 members of the agency. Each member appoints 1 director and 1 alternate from its organization to the board.


Blue Ridge Power Agency is a joint action agency that operates as directed by the Board of Directors. The ultimate goal of the organization, through the power of numbers and economies of scale of cooperative, joint action, is to pursue those activities which will insure the most reliable and lowest cost wholesale electric power supplies possible for its members today and in the future.


The current efforts of Blue Ridge and its staff are focused mostly in 2 areas:
  • Administering its current power supply contract and the associated transmission contract
  • Representing BRPA members’ interest where wholesale power supply and transmission issues are involved, particularly in regard to the electric industry’s transition to a restructured, customer choice structure
