Upper Midwest Energy Plan

We're continuing our clean energy transition.

Xcel Energy’s Upper Midwest Energy Plan outlines how we’ll aggressively reduce carbon emissions, on our way to achieving our vision to provide all customers with 100% carbon-free electricity by 2050.

Under the Upper Midwest Energy Plan, we would continue leading the clean energy transition by closing all of our coal units in the Upper Midwest a decade ahead of schedule, ensuring reliable, affordable energy by extending the use of nuclear energy at our Monticello plant, using cleaner natural gas, and increasing wind and solar energy.

We filed our Upper Midwest Energy Plan with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission on July 1, 2019, and we filed a supplement to our plan on June 30, 2020. We will continue to engage with and invite feedback from all stakeholders as the plan is considered by the Commission. We anticipate a Commission in mid-2021.

Energy Saving Tip

Install ceiling fans to keep cool air circulating so you can turn down your air conditioner. Still, make sure to turn off your fan when you leave the room.

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.
