Cleaner Energy

We're pledging to increase the use of renewables, like solar and wind, to meet our community's energy needs. We plan to supply 30% of retail electric sales with renewable energy by 2030, and 25% by 2025. Since announcing Energy 2030, MGE already has moved forward clean energy projects, including our Shared Solar pilot project and our Saratoga wind farm.

Through energy efficiency, conservation and cleaner energy sources, we all can work together to reduce carbon emissions 40% by 2030 from what they were in 2005. Work with MGE to support renewable energy and to learn how to use energy efficiently in your home or business for a more sustainable future for our community.

Shared Solar Construction to Start

Construction of a large solar array will begin soon on the roof of the City of Middleton's Municipal Operations Center. The "MOC," as it's called, will be host to MGE's Shared Solar project, a pilot program in which the City and MGE have partnered to offer locally generated solar energy to MGE residential customers. More than 300 customers have signed up to take part in the first of its kind community solar project for Wisconsin.

Shared Solar Powers Up

With the array operational, anyone can go online to monitor its output. It's expected the array will generate about 740,000 kWh of electricity, which is enough to power about 100 homes. Check out our short video featuring an MGE engineer involved in the project.
