Business Rebates & Savings

Minnesota Power offers a variety of energy conservation programs to commercial, industrial, and agricultural customers including energy analyses, project design assistance and rebates. These programs are designed to determine how our customers use energy and, more importantly, how they can improve their usage patterns. We understand that each business is different and we are flexible in order to meet the diverse and unique needs of our customers.

Whether your business is large, small, or somewhere in between, Minnesota Power has a program designed to help you find ways to save energy and money. By using a tailored approach and two different paths for delivering incentives, we're able to find the "right fit" to help your business use energy more effectively.

If you have any questions about your project or which program better suits your needs, contact Minnesota Power at 218-355-2843 option 4.
