Rate and Rebate Programs

Saving energy feels just as good as saving money.

At Arrowhead Cooperative, we’ve got ways to help you do both, including a number of reduced-rate programs based on the type of electric-heating or electric-water-heating systems you have in your home.

A Winter Tax Break

With the start of another heating season, Arrowhead Cooperative would like to remind our residential customers who have electric heat as a primary heat source that their heat is exempt from Minnesota sales tax for the period of November through April.

The exemption only applies to electricity used as your primary fuel for residential heating; the property cannot be commercial rental property. If you have two meters only the heat meter is exempt. Electricity from lights, appliances, etc. is not tax exempt.

Arrowhead Cooperative must charge sales tax unless we have a Sales Tax Exemption Certificate on file. If you qualify for the heat tax exemption please complete and send in the form below. If you are not certain you qualify review the Minnesota Department of Revenue’s guidelines.

If you find you qualify and are not sure if you have already submitted this certificate, contact our billing office at 218-663-7239 or 1-800-864-3744.

If you signed and submitted the Sales Tax Exemption Certificate in past years you are already tax exempt. You do not need to renew this tax break each year.

If more than 50% of your winter heating is supplied by electricity you may elect to become exempt from sales tax during the months of November – April.
