About Us


Xcel Energy is a major U.S. electric and natural gas company, and the nation’s #1 wind power utility. In a changing and challenging energy marketplace, we are forging our path to a more sustainable energy future. We are investing in energy advancements, supporting the communities we serve, and offering customers cleaner options and more control over their energy use. Based in Minneapolis, Minn., we have regulated operations in eight Midwestern and Western states, and provide a comprehensive portfolio of energy-related products and services to approximately 3.5 million electricity customers and 2 million natural gas customers through four operating companies.

To break it down, what that means is that we know quite a bit about energy. And we have what you might call a “passion” for looking at energy and energy use in new ways—like renewables. This blog shares our thoughts, ideas and perspectives around energy. We hand picked our bloggers for their keen insights, understanding of the business and their flat-out “energy” for all things energy related.
