Windsource for Residences

Sign up for wind-sourced energy to power your home

Windsource® allows customers to get more or all of their energy from renewable resources, and it costs less than the price of a latte.

As one of the nation's largest voluntary renewable energy programs, Windsource is an easy, inexpensive way to make a difference. Thanks in part to Windsource customers, the amount of renewable energy we produce today is above and beyond government requirements and continues to grow.

Your Windsource subscription is added right to your Xcel Energy bill, making it easy to go green.

Get Started

  1. Sign up today with our online application.

  2. Choose how much you want: one 100 kilowatt-hour block of renewable energy is enough to power all the lights in a typical home per month.* Choose up to 100% wind energy.

*Lighting Calculation: Based on home with 42 light sockets, using a mix of CFLs, LEDs and incandescent bulbs

Pricing Information

Windsource subscriptions are available in 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks for the small additional premium. Starting with one block, Windsource adds, on average, $0.01/kWh to your energy cost (complete pricing information can be found at the Terms and Conditions link below). For a typical home using 900 kWh in a month, that would total just $9/month to be 100% Windsource-powered. Peace of mind from clean energy is affordable and easy with Windsource.

Frequently Asked Questions

Note: Beginning January 2020, the Minnesota Windsource program will no longer be Green-e certified. Windsource Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) will continue to be retired and verified using the MRETS REC tracking system, which verifies that RECs are only counted once and cannot be used for other purposes. As always, your Windsource purchase allows you to make claims on the RECs that we retire on your behalf.

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."

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.
