Eau Claire (WQOW) – Soon, Xcel Energy customers may be able to get their electricity from renewable energy.

Xcel Energy recently proposed a program called Renewable Connect. If the proposal is approved, customers who subscribe will be able to get 100 percent of their electricity from a mix of wind and solar resources. The renewable energy will come from a wind farm and two large solar gardens in Minnesota and the Dakotas. Xcel officials said they’re offering this program, because renewable energy is in high demand.

“One of the biggest options they want is renewable energy. One of the reasons you see the solar garden right here,” said Chris Ouellette, spokesperson for Xcel Energy.

If a customer chooses to subscribe to the program, their bill would stay the same, with the exception of a subscription fee. Xcel officials hope to have the proposal approved by the end of the year, and the program to begin early next year.
