It is staffed with experts who can provide information about energy assistance programs, connect callers with resources, and provide other information.
Residents who have questions about the propane situation or who are in danger of running out of heating fuel can call (651) 297-1304 in the metro area or (800) 657-3504 in greater Minnesota.
