Minnesota Cold Weather Rule

The Minnesota Cold Weather Rule dictates that eligible residential energy customers are protected from service disconnection from October 1 through April 30 provided the disconnection would affect the customer’s primary heating source.

If you are unable to pay your utility bills and need cold weather protection from utility shut off, please DOWNLOAD AND COMPLETE THIS FORM and return it to the ‘Glencoe Light and Power’ office immediately. The Minnesota Utilities Commission provides that from October 1 through April 30, a utility cannot disconnect a residential utility customer for nonpayment if you enter into, and keep current with, a mutually agreed upon payment arrangement with the utility.

The Cold Weather Rule does not forbid all winter disconnections. If you receive a Notice of Proposed Disconnection this winter, you must act promptly.
