The cost of the Windsource® energy you purchase will be based on your actual metered electricity usage. The Windsource rate is currently set at $3.53 per 100 kWh block, less a credit for fuel costs. In 2019, the average fuel cost credit for a C&I Non-Demand customer was $2.55, making the net charge for the Windsource $0.98 per block ($0.0098). If your electricity use is less than your level of Windsource commitment, you will be charged only for what you use.
A Windsource charge will appear as a separate line item on your monthly Xcel Energy bill, charged against the number of Windsource kilowatt-hours (kWh) you purchased.
The Windsource rate is updated periodically, pending approval from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission. For more information on your usage or the Windsource rate, contact your account manager, the Business Solutions Center at 1-800-481-4700 or email us at email@example.com.
Participation in Windsource requires a three-year commitment for business customers. You will continue to participate in Windsource on a month-to-month basis after the three-year period unless you notify us of a change in your commitment. Please allow 30 days for your change to be effective. The Windsource rate can change over time, pending approval from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
There is no early termination fee. You may cancel this agreement with Xcel Energy after the minimum term by calling the Business Solutions Center at 1-800-481-4700 or writing to Xcel Energy, P.O. Box 8, Eau Claire, WI 54702-0008.
Windsource is supplied by 100% Minnesota wind.
