“We appreciate and support the efforts of customers who have sought assistance and made consistent payments during the winter months,” said Pat Boland, manager, customer policy and assistance. “Our partnership with local Community Action Programs has resulted in customers receiving needed energy assistance. Funds are still available, so we encourage customers to apply.”

Minnesota’s Cold Weather Rule helps protect residential energy customers from service disconnections affecting their primary heating source. Developed by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, the rule is in effect annually from Oct. 15 through April 15.
