Leveraged Funds

Since 1993, ECC has leveraged over $400 million in non-federal resources for low-income utility bill payment and conservation assistance programs. Examples of securing additional resources include:

  • Over $15 million each year for a low-income electric bill discount (and the POWER On Program) for Xcel Energy customers

  • Dedicating a percentage of utility revenue to low-income conservation programs.  As utility revenue increases, so does funding for the low-income conservation programs.

  • State appropriations to supplement federal energy assistance and weatherization programs

  • Low income discount electric rates and affordability programs for all regulated utilities

  • Over $8.5 million each year for natural gas bill discounts 

  • ECC secured an $11 million annual increase to Xcel Energy’s Power ON energy affordability program. See Docket #04-1956/#10-854
