Additional Services

We ask that you make every attempt to serve new loads from one service point. It is Minnesota Power policy that the customer pays all actual costs for additional services unless:

  • Customers' premises are divided by a public road or alley preventing the customer from performing their own distribution of service.
  • Customers' buildings or operations are geographically separated to the extent that it is not electrically feasible for the customer to perform their own distribution of service.

As required by the Minnesota Electrical Act, statute 326.244 Inspections, Subdivision 3, Duty of the Electrical Utility, Minnesota Power cannot energize electric services until we have received the copy of the Request for Electrical Inspection or confirmation that the electrical inspection has been accomplished.

Minnesota Power’s parent company, ALLETE, has entered an agreement to be acquired by a partnership led by Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Global Infrastructure Partners and start the process to become a private company.

This transaction will not change our operations, strategy or shared purpose and values, and it is business as usual for all of us at Minnesota Power. Learn more at
