Initiating electric service requires a prepay of $50.00. This prepay is applied to your electric bill. Electric meters are read on or about the 1st of the month and bills are sent on the 25th with payment due upon receipt. A 1.5% penalty is applied to accounts not paid by the 15th of the following month. Payment may be mailed in the envelope provided, dropped off, or placed in the drop box in front of City Hall.

We all want to protect the environment. The good news is that currently 62% of the energy which customers receive from Barnesville Municipal Power came from renewable resources including wind, solar and the hydroelectric power plants along the Missouri River. But many people want to do more. Customers may now sign-up for Bright Energy Choices, a program that lets us and our customers support the development of additional energy resources.
If you choose to participate in the program, a small premium of .005 (one-half cent) per kilowatt-hour of energy will be added to 38 percent of your kilowatt-hour usage each month. Learn more on our informational sheet. To sign-up, just complete the application form and return to City Hall. Commercial customers who wish to participate will need to contact TEC Manager Guy Swenson at 218-354-2723.
More info and application:
The City of Barnesville has constructed a Community Solar Garden on the west side of town just off 2nd Avenue SW, near the Barnesville Community Garden.
A “community solar garden” is a collection of solar panels shared with customers who don’t want to go to the expense and hassle to install and maintain a solar panel system of their own or customers with shaded roofs or even customers who might be renting an apartment!
Any Barnesville Municipal Power customer can purchase one or more of the solar panels. The cost of each panel is $775. You will receive a monthly credit on utility bill for the energy produced by your panel! In addition, you may even qualify for the 30% Federal Tax Credit for renewable energy!
To learn more about this exciting opportunity, check out our informational brochure.
If you’re ready to move forward with your purchase of one or more solar panels, click here to download the Ownership Agreement.
With the marvels of technology, residents are able to monitor the electric production of the panels at the Barnesville Community Solar Garden by just clicking on this link - Solar Garden.
