Regular Minnesotans Speaking Out on Utility Costs

Xcel Energy is asking more than 1 million Minnesota residents to pay 12.5% more for their electricity over the next two years.  The price hike will increase the average Xcel customer's bill by $123 by 2016.  Rather than simply accepting their ever increasing utility bills, hundreds of Minnesotans are making their voices heard at the Public Utilities Commission.  Here are two individuals who shared their stories with us.

If you are an Xcel customer you too can speak out against high utility rates.

Or you can have your say in person at an upcoming public hearing.
