Customer Support

Renewable*Connect Minnesota – Phase II

Xcel Energy’s Renewable*Connect® program enables customers to use more wind and solar energy. The program’s first phase in Minnesota is now fully subscribed and is already helping businesses, governments, residents and universities further their sustainability goals.

In response to strong customer interest, we have proposed a new phase of Renewable*Connect that will open up additional renewable resources for more customers. Renewable*Connect allows customers to choose how much of their energy comes from renewable sources, and how long of a commitment they wish to make.

As part of the new proposed phase, we will add solar energy to the current Windsource® program energy mix and, in 2021, Minnesota Windsource customers will be seamlessly transitioned to Renewable*Connect.

The proposal was filed with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission in January 2019 and approved in August 2019. We will provide updates on the filing here.

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.
