Cold Weather Rule takes effect Oct. 15

Connexus Energy customers who may have trouble paying their winter energy bills are reminded that the Cold Weather Rule takes effect Oct. 15.

The Minnesota Cold Weather Rule protects qualified residential utility customers during the winter months.

Under this rule, electric service will not be disconnected from Oct. 15 through April 15 due to non-payment, if customers meet Cold Weather Rule requirements.

However, this rule does not relieve customers of their responsibility to pay their utility bills.

Those who qualify for Cold Weather Rule protection need to set up a payment schedule with the utility.

For more information on the Cold Weather Rule, call Connexus Energy’s Credit Department at 763-323-2620.

Connexus Energy is the largest member-owned utility in Minnesota providing electricity and related products and services to over 127,000 homes and businesses in portions of Anoka, Chisago, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Sherburne, and Washington counties.
