Xcel Energy’s Flex Pricing Pilot

Xcel Energy’s Flex Pricing Pilot aims to reduce electricity demand and help participants save

Xcel Energy’s two-year Flex Pricing Pilot began on November 1, following its postponement due to the pandemic. With Flex Pricing, electricity prices vary depending on the time of day. That means participants’ bills will depend on how much electricity they use and also on when they use it. Xcel Energy is piloting Flex Pricing with 10,000 customers in Minnesota, including some Seward residents. 

Electricity costs more to produce when demand is high. During these times when customers are using the most energy, we often need to get energy from sources that cost more and rely more on fossil fuels, which are less environmentally friendly.

Flex Pricing is one way Xcel Energy is helping communities and customers work together to reduce peak electricity demand. Demand is the amount of electricity needed to supply everyone with all the electricity they need at any moment in the day. When demand spikes, typically on weekday evenings, the energy needed to meet that demand might need to come from sources that cost more and rely more on fossil fuels, which are less environmentally friendly. If we can reduce those spikes in electricity demand, we could use even more renewable energy now avoid and building new fossil fuel power plants in the future.If you’re part of the Flex Pricing Pilot, Xcel Energy will mail you a welcome packet in October. Participants can opt out of the pilot anytime. For more information about the Flex Pricing Pilot, visit xcelenergy.com/FlexPricing.
