Financial Victories

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 $5 million each year for a low-income electric bill discount (and the POWER On Program) for Xcel Energy customers

  • State appropriations to supplement federal energy assistance and weatherization programs

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

  • Increasing amount and dedicating a source for low-income conservation programs

  • Pre-purchasing propane and fuel oil and passing savings onto low-income delivered fuel consumers

  • Negotiating settlements in utility rate cases and other regulatory proceedings
