Affordability Programs

 

Energy CENTS Coalition administers Xcel Energy's POWER On and Gas Affordability Programs, CenterPoint Energy's Gas Affordability Program (GAP), and Greater Minnesota Gas' Gas Affordability Program.

The programs are designed to:

  • make utility bills more affordable
  • encourage customers to make consistent payments
  • lower the costs associated with the utility's attempts to collect payments from customers with limited resources.

To qualify, you must first receive a grant from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).  For more information about the Energy Assistance Program and to find the service provider for your area,  click here.
