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.

Energy Saving Tip

Make sure to regularly change the air filters on your HVAC system (at least once per month). Old, clogged filters are far less efficient than new ones.

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.
