Minnesota 2020 Electric Rate Review

Dec. 2019 update – On Dec. 12, 2019, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission approved Xcel Energy’s proposal to extend several components of our current rate plan through 2020. The approval of this alternative approach means the company will withdraw its 2020 rate proposal, and electric rates in Minnesota will remain unchanged in 2020. This decision gives Xcel Energy, along with regulators, stakeholders, customers and communities, the opportunity to focus on other key issues in the coming year that will help us continue to lead the clean energy transition and build on our plans to reduce carbon emissions, all while keeping bills low.

On Nov. 1, 2019, we filed an application with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission that includes investments to deliver a better product for our customers, giving them more of what they expect from us. That means we’re investing in maintaining and improving the infrastructure we use to generate and deliver electricity, enhancing the reliability of the service our customers count on, while keeping bills low in the years ahead.

Under the proposal, residential customers would see electric bills increase in 2020 by an average of about $4.80, keeping bills below the national average.

Energy Saving Tip

Rather than crank up your heat in the winter, keep your thermostat at a moderate level and bundle up. (Who doesn't love fuzzy slippers?)

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
