Our products and services differ based on state. Please select your state (or the state you're interested in) from the list to the left.
Why do our products and services differ based on state? Because our business is regulated by state. We have regulated operations in eight Western and Midwestern states. The different regulatory body for each state we serve determines what products and services we deliver in that state.
Minnesota businesses, you can save on your energy bill during the summer months with Saver’s Switch®. Sign up and we’ll give you a monthly discount of $5 per ton of enrolled air conditioning on your energy bills from June through September.
Most customers have about 5 tons of air conditioning, which saves $100 each summer – customers with larger systems can save much, much more. For example, a Stillwater insurance agency saved 28% on summer energy charges.
Best of all, Saver’s Switch is free.
To enroll, sign up online or download an application under How to get started below.
On the hottest summer days when demand for electricity approaches its peak, we use a remote controlled switch to adjust your air conditioner cycling it off and on for brief 15- to 20-minute intervals. Most customers never notice a difference – until they see their discounted bills.

Saver’s Switch also allows us to generate electricity more efficiently during peak demand periods and delays the need to build expensive new power plants which helps the environment.
In return for a significant discount on summer cooling costs, you'll help us manage electrical usage peaks by cutting back just a little on the total time your system runs to cool your business. A licensed electrician installs a small remote-controlled switch outside near your central air conditioner.
Saver’s Switch is only activated during times when electricity demand approaches its peak.
The maximum amount of allowable control hours for Minnesota is 300 hours per year. On average in Minnesota, we use only a fraction of those hours and have never reached the maximum.
The switch will not harm your AC nor void any warranties that are known to us.
If the monthly discount exceeds the electric energy charges for a specific month, the discount will be the value of the electric energy charges for that month.
