3. Get Involved in renewable energy!
Windsource allows customers to get more or all of their energy from renewable sources. Subscriptions are added right to your Xcel Energy bill and are available in 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks for the small additional premium of $1.50 per block. For an average home, that would total just $12/month to be 100% Windsource-powered. Learn more and sign up at xcelenergy.com/Windsource.
Solar*Rewards® is your opportunity to receive credit for solar at your home. Monthly energy use is offset by solar and you’ll receive credit on your bill for solar energy produced. Learn more at xcelenergy.com/Renewables.
