December 2020

Xcel Energy will have a temporary system in place to increase natural gas supply in the Metro Area. This temporary system is located near 45th Street S. and 54th Avenue S. in Fargo and will increase natural gas supply in the Metro Area on peak customer use days during the 2020/2021 winter heating season. We will use this additional supply of natural gas to continue to provide the safe, reliable natural gas service our customers expect.

The temporary system will include liquefied natural gas tanks, a power generator, concrete barriers and security fencing. We will have the equipment in place through spring 2021. Crews will refill the tanks as this additional supply of natural gas is used. Please note the schedule is subject to change.
