The State of Minnesota set up the Cold Weather Rule to protect residential heat-affected customers — who make and keep a payment plan — from disconnection of service between Oct. 15 and April 15.

Most Cold Weather Rule payment plans last until April 15 unless you make other arrangements with Dakota Electric. Your service could be shut off if you have a past due balance on April 15 and do not make and keep a new payment plan.
Member service representatives are ready to work with you to avoid disconnection. Contact Dakota Electric at 651-463-6212 before April 15.
