Dual Fuel Interruption Schedule7/19/2024

Dual Fuel is an interruptible service rate designed primarily for electric heat that provides customers a discount on their usage in exchange for occasional interruptions from Minnesota Power. Interruptions occur when loads across our territory AND pricing on the electric market are both high. These interruptions help keep electricity costs down for all Minnesota Power customers. Minnesota Power offers two Dual Fuel rate options to customers with different interruption guidelines. Visit the Dual Fuel page for more information about this program.
