Payment Tips

Have your account number ready

For all payment options, have your account number available and note it on any payment documents.

Pay separately for each individual project or invoice

For customers who manage multiple projects at a time, please make separate payments for each individual project or invoice, so we can apply payment to the correct account and avoid unnecessary delays.

The hard copy invoice will be sent to you via U.S. mail to the primary contact address provided on your application. If you would like an electronic copy of your invoice, please contact your assigned Xcel Energy representative.

Energy Saving Tip

Set your hot water heater to no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't just energy smart—it's also safer, since it reduces the likelihood of accidental burns.

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.
