MINNEAPOLIS – Xcel Energy recently recognized 36 Minnesota businesses for their outstanding efforts to help customers save energy. The awards, presented April 9 at Pinstripes in Edina, recognized contractors, equipment suppliers and engineers that contributed the greatest electricity and natural gas savings to Xcel Energy’s Minnesota conservation programs in 2014.   These 36 companies saved customers 56 gigawatt-hours of electricity and 83,000 dekatherms of natural gas. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, that’s the equivalent of powering 5,900 homes for a year.  Xcel Energy offers incentives, such as rebates and funding for energy efficiency studies and upgrades, to its business and municipal customers to encourage them to make energy-efficient choices. Through the help of this group of partners, Xcel Energy distributed $5,960,000 in energy efficiency rebates for the various projects completed. (full story here...)
