Cold Weather Rule
The Cold Weather Rule, in effect from October 15 to April 15 in Minnesota, governs how utilities handle disconnects; it does not prohibit them. We use the Minnesota guidelines for all members, including those in Wisconsin. We are prepared to work with members who are struggling to pay
their electric bill.
