Xcel Energy has quietly raised the rates for their Windsource program, bumping up from 2 cents to 3.5 cents per kilowatt-hour. While their website mentions the change, that seems to have been the only advertising of the new rate; I was unaware of it until I got my bill a few days ago. Interestingly, the bill insert touting Windsource lists the program's cost at the old rate. Maybe they just had a lot of old paper to get rid of.

There's also the interesting fact that the ordinary electric rates listed on my bill don't match the rates quoted in their flyer about the new rates coming into effect, but that's another question.
