Interruptible Programs: Minnesota

Advantages of participating as an interruptible customer:

  • Notification: Receive advance notification (usually 2 hours) before curtailment periods using Alliant Energy's Power Manager Communication System.
  • Guaranteed lower energy rates: In exchange for reducing consumption during periods of extreme demand, you receive a discount on your electric pricing for the entire year. You can review the tariff rate sheets for details on the options and the credits for the interruptible program.

Customer notification

To notify you of interruptions IPL uses an automated notification system, the Power Manager Communication System.

Power Manager enables IPL to simultaneously notify multiple contacts within your company in a variety of ways. You choose how you would like to receive your event notifications either by telephone, pager, fax or e-mail.

You are required to receive the notification from Power Manager via at least one land-line telephone that is available 24 hours a day and operational in the event of a power outage. All individuals receiving telephone notification are asked to press “1” at the beginning to hear the message, as well as to confirm receipt by pressing “1” at the end of the message.
