Dual Fuel FAQs
Q. What is the cost of installing Dual Fuel?
A . The costs can vary greatly depending on the individual installation . A mechanical heating contractor is
normally hired to install your plenum heater, boiler, electric furnace, etc . An electrician will need to install a
second service panel—one panel will have circuits for general household/business use; the second panel
will have only the electric heating circuits . This means two separate meters are required . For services
200 amps and less, a radio receiver and socket interrupter or integral meter contactor will be installed
by Minnesota Power . For services over 200 amps, an electrician needs to work with Minnesota Power’s
metering personnel to install a proper interruptible control system . The cost to upgrade Minnesota Power’s
distribution system facilities to accommodate your additional electric heating load can consist of but may not
be limited to a transformer, wire, and meter disconnects in applicable installations, and a radio receiver and
socket interrupter or integral meter contactor to control the heating service .
Q. How does the Dual Fuel rate compare with other fuels?
A . Please refer to the Fuel Comparison Calculator .
Q. How often are the Dual Fuel interruptions? How long are the interruptions?
A . We cannot anticipate in advance the frequency or duration of interruptions . During times when demand on
Minnesota Power’s electric system is high, for emergencies, testing, or when the cost of supplying power is
greater than the return from the rate we can interrupt your Dual Fuel service . The maximum interruption is not
to exceed 30 percent of your Dual Fuel requirements of any annual period . There is no maximum interruption
length per day defined in the rate . This is why it is extremely important that your non-electric backup system is
capable of continuous operation and is adequately sized to meet 100 percent of your heating needs .
Q. Is a fireplace okay as a backup system?
A . The non-electric backup system must be externally vented and capable of continuous operation to meet your
total space heating needs . It is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure that the backup heating system is
adequate for comfort and protection from freezing of pipes, etc .
Q. Does Minnesota Power permit wood to be used as a backup heat source?
A . Wood can be the backup heating system for Dual Fuel, however, wood requires that someone is home to
manage the backup system . Careful consideration is needed to determine if this is appropriate for your
backup heating system .
Q. Can I put my water heater on the Dual Fuel system?
A . Yes, you can have a water heater connected to your Dual Fuel system, provided you have a non-electric,
externally vented backup water heating system installed, e .g ., natural gas, propane, or oil . The customer is
responsible for the operation and maintenance of all backup systems .

Dual Fuel FAQs
Q. Can I put my air conditioner on the Dual Fuel Rate?
A . Air conditioning cannot be placed on Dual Fuel Rate .
Q. Can I Put a Heat Pump on the Dual Fuel Rate?
A . For the billing months of June through September all service through the Dual Fuel meter is billed as firm
electric service under a separate application of the applicable standard rate schedule (i .e ., Residential or
General Service if a commercial customer) . The service shall not be subject to interruption during this
period . For the billing months of October through May all service through the Dual Fuel meter shall be subject
to interruption and billed under the applicable Dual Fuel Interruptible Electric Service Schedule .
Q. If I go on vacation or go south for a month, can I go off Dual Fuel for that period of time?
A . No . When you go off a rate, you stay off that rate for a minimum 12 months .
Q. I am looking at buying a business or home that has Dual Fuel. What happens when a new owner
moves into an existing building that already has Dual Fuel?
A . The new owner will be connected to Dual Fuel . With your first bill you will receive a form to sign and return .
This form is to make you aware that you will be subject to interruptions and to qualify you for sales tax
exemptions for your electric heat for the billing months of November 1 through April 30 .
Q. Why is Minnesota Power changing its policies/practices?
A . The rate has not changed since the inception of the Dual Fuel rate in the 1980s . Although the rate has not
changed, technology has advanced . With these technological advances, we have been able to upgrade the
old time and temperature equipment that often failed when it was extremely cold . The new equipment, which
uses a radio signal, also enables us to more closely match interruptions to the needs on our system .
Q. Will I be notified if there is a Dual Fuel interruption?
A . No . You can call our Interactive Voice Response at 1-800-307-6937 (Minnesota only) or 1-218-722-2625
or you may go to our website at www .mnpower .com and click on the Dual Fuel Interruption Notification Link .
When an interruption is scheduled or in process, a message will be posted .

Dual Fuel FAQs
Q. How do I qualify for Dual Fuel?
A . To qualify, you must have an electric heating system and a non-electric fueled, externally vented, backup
heating system . A backup heating system can be fueled by oil, wood, propane or natural gas, and it must
be capable of continuous operation to meet your total space-heating needs . You cannot use electric heaters
connected to your household panel to back up your Dual Fuel electric heat .
Q. What do I do if I want to discontinue Dual Fuel?
A . If you want to discontinue Dual Fuel, you will not be allowed to return to the Dual Fuel rate for a minimum of 12
months . If you wish to discontinue this rate, you can request this rate change . Minnesota Power will disable
the radio control . If the Dual Fuel meter can be removed (no electric equipment requiring power is wired into
the Dual Fuel electrical panel), Minnesota Power will do so . If the meter is not removed, you will continue to
be billed a monthly service charge . To avoid that charge, transfer all electric heating circuits to the general
service panel . If you have had a lot line metering pedestal installed, and decide you no longer want Dual Fuel,
the Dual Fuel pedestal may need to be removed at a cost to you . The cost to remove our facilities varies based
on individual installations . You would need to contact the Dual Fuel Coordinator for these costs and sign an
interruptible service disconnect request .

Controlled Access
Storage Heating Rate
The Controlled Access rate is designed around the ability to store energy for space and water heating . During
off-peak hours from 11 p .m . to 7 a .m ., when the cost of electricity and system demand is less, storage
heating equipment turns on and stores the energy needed for the balance of the day . A storage system can
consist of thermal storage room units, a central storage furnace, a central hot water system or slab heat . Water
heating on the storage rate generally requires a minimum of one 80-gallon electric water heater or two 52-gallon
electric water heaters . Larger combinations may be necessary depending on hot water demand . Electricity
to energize the heating equipment is on only between 11 p .m . and 7 a .m . This system is also known as
controlled access or “ETS” (electric thermal storage) .
Conditions:
To qualify for the Controlled Access rate, you must have sufficient storage capacity to meet your building’s
space or water heating needs . The homeowner or business owner will receive a Controlled Access Agreement
and the tax-exempt card after the meter is installed (all heating fuels in the state of Minnesota are tax-exempt) .
