Helpful information on the Stay Warm Minnesota site includes financial assistance, energy efficiency, and heating safety programs provided by the federal and state government, private industry, nonprofits, and energy utilities.

Links to nonprofit organizations and government sites are listed, along with publications and tips for saving energy.

For instance, information under “Finding Financial Assistance” describes the Cold Weather Rule and how customers can prevent having their heat turned off if they agree to and keep a payment plan with their utility.

It also tells how consumers can apply with the state’s Energy Assistance Program and their utility and charitable organizations to receive financial assistance to help pay their heating bills.

For more information, contact the Division of Energy Resources Energy Information Center at 1-800-657-3710 or energy.info@state.mn.us.
