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.
For only about $1 a month in Minnesota, you can help increase renewable energy and build a new energy future. You can purchase renewable energy through Windsource®, one of the nation’s largest voluntary renewable energy programs.
It’s within your power: the energy you purchase is generated in addition to our other renewable energy mandates. This means your purchase helps increase renewable energy production in Minnesota. We currently have 20 wind farms dedicated to Windsource, representing 64 wind turbines and nearly 90 megawatts of capacity.
Windsource subscriptions are available in 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks for a small additional premium of $3.53 per block, less a credit for fuel costs. In 2010, the average fuel cost credit was $2.63, making the average net charge for Windsource $0.90 per block.
You can sign up for as little as one block or opt to have 100% of your electricity provided through Windsource (for around $10 per month for our average customer).
We require a one-year commitment for residential customers and your Windsource premium shows up right on your monthly energy bill.
