Business Saver's Switch FAQs


When you enroll in Saver’s Switch, you get:


The maximum amount of allowable control hours for Minnesota is 300 hours per year. On average in Minnesota, we use only a fraction of those hours. If the monthly discount exceeds the electric energy charges for a specific month, the discount will be the value of the electric energy charges for that month. Your enrollment is automatically carried forward every year.

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.


Electrical Appliance Safety

Always keep appliances clean, operating properly, and clear of obstructions. Unplug them when cleaning or repairing to avoid serious injury.
