Home Weatherization

‘Tis the season for sweaters, apple orchards and pumpkin-spice everything. It’s also the right time to start weatherizing your home for the heating season because those cold temperatures tend to sneak up on us when we least expect it. Assessing your home for energy-saving measures helps pinpoint where your house is losing energy and what you can do to save money. Have hard-to-heat areas? Contact the Energy Experts® at 651-463-6243 or email [email protected] to learn more about our off-peak electric heating solutions.


Join us for our first Virtual Energy Audit Workshop on Oct. 8.

Dakota Electric and Minnesota Energy Resources have partnered to offer their consumers a comprehensive electric and gas residential energy audit. To kick off our partnership, we are offering a FREE virtual energy workshop! During the workshop you will have an opportunity to sign up for an in-home energy-saving audit. This service is valued at over $300, but you pay only $50. Dakota Electric and Minnesota Energy Resources pay the rest.

Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020 | 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Reserve your spot by contacting Stacy Boots Camp at 888-734-6365 or emailing [email protected]. Once registered, you will receive an email link to the virtual event.

To be eligible for a joint natural gas and electric residential audit, participants must be a natural gas customer of Minnesota Energy Resources and a member of Dakota Electric. This service is for single-family and townhome residents. Can’t make the workshop? Schedule an audit by phone at 800-376-0517, or online at
