Military Service Personnel Assistance
Utility Payment Arrangements for Military Service Personnel
Household members who receive orders for active duty, deployment, or a change of duty station are protected from service disconnection. Minnesota law protects these military personnel from shut-off if they cannot pay their utility bills in full.
How to Apply
Contact Minnesota Power at 218-722-2625 or 1-800-228-4966 for an application to make a payment plan. Note: In order to qualify for this protection, you must keep this payment plan.

Right to Appeal
If you and Minnesota Power cannot agree on a payment plan, you have the right to appeal to the Public Utilities Commission. Minnesota Power will not disconnect your service during the appeal process.
