Xcel Energy offers Minnesota rebates to commercial customers who make certain energy-efficiency improvements, such as boilers, furnaces, equipment tune-ups, equipment controls and motors. Xcel Energy also offers design assistance. Xcel's Saver's Switch program for commercial customers encourages curtailment of energy usage during peak periods; participating customers have a device installed on their air conditioners, and the utility cycles the system on and off during periods of high energy demand. Customers who participate receive a bill credit during the summer months.

For more information, including equipment qualifications, eligibility and applications, see the program web site.
