Special Recovery Rebates

Special Recovery rebates can help damaged Twin Cities businesses get up and running

Xcel Energy is committed to helping our neighborhoods and businesses repair and rebuild following the widespread acts of property damage in the Twin Cities area in May and June. In addition to working with non-profits dedicated to helping people and neighborhoods get back on their feet, Xcel Energy is also offering impacted businesses with new rebates (“Special Recovery” rebates) --up to double the standard rebate amount-- for qualifying high-efficiency equipment, along with free energy consulting services to aid in their efforts to rebuild.

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.
