Keeping Costs Low

Our customer bills are below the national average.

It's true. Our Minnesota customer’s average electric bill is 19% below the national average.

  1. How much energy you use is a big part of your bill. Seven out of 10 customers saved on their bill last year, and to help reduce your usage, you can join over 25 energy efficiency programs for your home.
  2. We help keep your fuel costs low by investing in low-cost wind.
  3. To keep prices lower for you, our operating costs have remained flat for the past four years.

Energy Saving Tip

Turn off your lights when you leave the room—even if you'll only be gone for a moment. Contemporary light bulbs require very little energy to turn "on."

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.
