Save Money on Your Minnesota Power Bills!

Save Money on Your Minnesota Power Bills!

The electric bill can be a budget-buster when you’re surviving on a low income. Fortunately, your power company can usually help. There are several unknown or little-advertised programs that power companies may offer. These can help lower the cost of your power bill.

Most power companies offer a budget billing plan. This plan averages the annual cost of electricity in a home and bills the customer in 12 even installments. This can help low-income customers maintain a budget and avert payment problems, especially during the more expensive winter months.

Some companies even offer free energy-efficiency improvements (including free LED light bulbs!) and moratoriums that prevent your power from being shut off during the winter.

I have a big question. I am on disability and get EBT and social security. I never thought my life would end up this way. But have come to this after a car accident. I bought this house and never ever had a home that cost almost 500 a month in electricity. I even shut everything off and does no good. My company says there is nothing we can do it's just how it is. I have a child at home and it's just crazy. So trying to see if Aitkin Public Utilities Commission has something that there not telling me. Any help would be greatly appreciated ?

Hello, I am a 60 year old single mom on disability due to a life threatening disease. Lake Country Power is our only source of electricity that we are able to get. They are the highest price electric company around here. Each month they also charge $40 just for using their electric. The only source of help that I have been able to find is through Itasca County energy assistance program. I receive if they have enough funds roughly around $200 towards my electric each year. I am unable to find any other sources to help me through Lake country power. I would very much appreciate any information that you could give me that will help us.
