Minnesota’s Cold Weather Rule Ends

Xcel Energy is ready to help customers who may be struggling with their bills as spring arrives and Minnesota’s Cold Weather Rule ends for the season.


For those who may need financial assistance, there are a variety of programs that can help customers in need. 


The Cold Weather Rule, which expired April 30, helps protect residential energy customers from electric or gas service disconnections if it affects their primary heating source. The rule runs each year from October 1 – April 30. 


The Minnesota Energy Assistance Program pays up to $2,000 towards heat, power, water costs or repairing or replacing a broken heating system for eligible households.


For more information, visit or call 1-800-657-3710.


Income eligible households may also qualify for additional energy efficiency and conservation programs through Xcel Energy.
