Renewable Natural Gas: Request for 

Xcel Energy seeks information as we explore development of a voluntary renewable natural gas customer program.

Xcel Energy continues to lead the clean energy transition while providing reliable and affordable service to our customers. In addition to adding industry-leading amounts of renewable energy for our electric customers, we are also improving the environmental impact of our natural gas system, including developing innovative ways to deliver renewable natural gas for use in homes and businesses. This Request for Information is a first step in developing programs to deliver renewable natural gas for our customers in the Upper Midwest and Colorado.

The company is requesting general and technical information from renewable natural gas project developers, marketers and others that may deliver renewable natural gas supply in Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin. Responders can provide information on RNG for sale from facilities currently in operation, projects that are under development or ventures being planned or considered. The requested information includes production method, daily production volumes, gas quality, locations, start-up dates and contract terms.

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.
