Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Add more wind and solar to your energy mix through MGE's Green Power Tomorrow program.
MGE electric customers have the opportunity to receive some or all of their electricity from clean energy sources. Our Green Power Tomorrow (GPT) renewable energy program includes approximately 10,000 MGE customers who buy green power that's generated in our region. They help to:
- Prevent carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to more than 11,000 homes' electricity use for one year.
- Offset the greenhouse gas emissions equal to more than 180,000,000 miles driven by the average passenger vehicle.
How it works
At only a penny more per kilowatt-hour than our standard rate, GPT gives you the option to purchase electricity generated by our wind and solar resources. Whether it’s $1 per month or 100% of your electricity use, you determine the monthly amount of electricity purchased under GPT. Our GPT program is one of the easiest, most flexible and affordable ways to show your support for growing clean energy.
Where our green power comes from
MGE's green energy comes from wind farms— two in Wisconsin (including MGE's first wind farm in Kewaunee County) and three in Iowa, and from solar electric systems in our community and region. Learn more and sign up at mge.com/GPT.
MGE continues to grow our use of wind and solar to serve all customers as we work toward carbon emissions reductions of at least 80% by 2030 and net-zero carbon electricity by 2050. If we can go further faster, we will. Customer support of programs like GPT helps us to grow our use of renewable energy.
