Xcel to Unveil Minnesota Program

May 2002 - The Star Tribune reported that, pending regulatory approval, Xcel Energy plans to introduce its Windsource green pricing option to its Minnesota-based customers this summer. Similar to its Colorado-based program, Xcel proposes to offer customers the option to purchase wind energy in 100-kWh monthly blocks for an extra $2.50 per month (or 2.5¢/kWh) or customers can choose to have all of their power supplied as wind energy. Minnesota law requires the state's electric utilities to offer customers voluntary options to purchase power generated from renewable sources.
