Maybe your home or location isn’t ideal for installing rooftop solar panels. Or maybe you just don’t want solar panels or a wind turbine installed on your home or property. You can still purchase renewable energy to power your home!

By participating in Dakota Electric’s Wellspring Renewable Energy® program, you can support renewable energy and its future without having to build or buy anything.

While the electricity delivered to your home includes increasing amounts of renewable energy, our Wellspring Renewable Energy program gives you the option to help us do even more for the environment. You not only help support wind and solar development in the region, you also help reduce our dependency on non-renewable energy sources, like fossil fuels.

How it works:

  • Renewable energy is purchased in 100-kilowatt-hour blocks.
  • For each 100-kilowatt-hour block you purchase, there is an additional charge of $0.20 on your electric bill for wind energy or $2 for solar energy.

Option 1

Purchase the same amount of 100-kWh blocks each month.

Option 2

The number of blocks you purchase each month will fluctuate based on the amount of energy you use.
