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. 1 and April 30.
Most Cold Weather Rule payment plans last until April 30 unless you make other arrangements with Dakota Electric. Your service could be shut off if you have a past due balance on April 30 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 30.
Dakota Electric sends out Circuits monthly newsletter to our members each month. Inside, members can find valuable money- and energy-saving tips, special event details, news about Dakota Electric and electric utility industry information that may impact electric bills.
