Minnesota Natural Gas Rate Proposal

At Xcel Energy, we work every day to provide the service our customers depend on, delivering reliable energy at an affordable price.

Our rate proposal to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will set new base rates for the first time in 12 years. This natural gas rate proposal is our first since 2009 and will keep natural gas bills affordable in 2022. The proposal reflects ongoing investments in maintenance that keeps the natural gas system safe and reliable.

To reduce the impact to residential customers’ natural gas bills, the Commission approved extending the recovery of the extraordinary natural gas costs from the February 2021 extreme weather event, from 27 months to 63 months. The interim natural gas rate increase, which began Jan. 1, 2022, combined with the reduced monthly impact of the Pricing Event Surcharge on natural gas bills, lowers the average residential customer net bill increase to about 60 cents per month, depending on natural gas use.

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.
