We understand circumstances can make it difficult to meet your monthly bills. If you have a past-due balance, use our online Payment Arrangements option to schedule monthly payments and bring your account up to date.

You Are Eligible for Payment Arrangements If:

  • You have a Minnesota Energy Resources residential account.
  • You are not currently on a payment plan to pay off a past-due balance.
  • You have not broken a payment arrangement in the last 13 months.
  • You have not received a disconnection notice.

Other Things You Should Know

  • If you are attempting to set-up payment arrangements in order to avoid a disconnection of service you must contact our 24-Hour Customer Service at 800-889-9508.
  • Your request to make online payment arrangements can be denied if you still owe money on a previous payment plan with us.
  • Your request to make online payment arrangements can be denied if a payment arrangement has been broken in the last 13 months.
  • If you do not make the payments as determined in the payment arrangements agreement, we have the option to disconnect your service for nonpayment.
  • Once service is discontinued, we may require full past due amount plus a reconnection fee in order to restore services.

Make Payment Arrangements

If you do not meet the requirements listed above, please contact us as soon as possible.

Please Note: A confirmed payment is needed to set payment arrangements. Confirmed payments that are accepted for payment arrangements are:

  • Payments made through Quick Payment (please note a $3.95 fee is charged to every payment made).
  • Payments requested through e-Bill.
  • Payments made over the phone (a $3.95 fee is charged to every payment made).

How much is needed to set a Payment Arrangement:

  • A customer who has not broken payment arrangements, been disconnect for non-payment, and has not received NSF transactions in the last 13 months is requested to pay 1/3 of the full balance with a confirmed payment today and the remaining 2/3 in up to 90 days.
  • A customer who has had NSF transactions or a disconnection of service due to nonpayment in the last 13-months is required to pay 1/2 of the account balance with a confirmed payment today and the remainder in 2-weeks.
