A Home Energy Analysis (HEA) can help you determine how you use energy and what you can do to get the most for your energy dollar. Our friendly and professional auditors will help you identify ways to save energy in your home and you’ll receive energy-saving devices (at no charge). You can also customize your HEA according to your unique energy-saving goals (see below).

HEA with Electric Energy Emphasis
(free-of-charge)


Your energy auditor will help you find out how to get the most for your energy dollar. One of our friendly energy auditors, Larry Johnson or Dave Lake, will visit your home and analyze how you use energy, determine your electric energy use per appliance and develop an action plan for saving energy and managing costs.

You'll learn how to optimize your electric usage by changing the way you use appliances through day-to-day choices, how to determine the "right fit" for investments in energy-saving equipment, heating and cooling, appliances and lighting, and how to take advantage of Minnesota Power's rebates.

Program Offerings:
  • Free energy-efficient products and resources to help you save energy in your home.
  • A detailed action plan to stop wasting energy in your daily activities at home.
Participation Requirements
  • Participant must be a Minnesota Power customer (e.g., responsible for his or her own Minnesota Power electric bill).
  • Participant must be at home during the analysis. Allow up to 2 hours for completion of the in-home analysis.

In some cases, Minnesota Power will work with your gas utility or Community Action Agency (CAA)* to deliver a comprehensive energy analysis. Check with your heating fuel provider or CAA to see if they participate.

Does your home have two or more of the following?

  • Cold drafts in winter

  • Heating system does not keep home comfortable
  • Cooling system does not keep home comfortable

  • A detailed action plan to stop wasting energy in your daily activities at home.
  • Information on air leaks and low insulation levels through blower door analysis and thermal infrared scans.
