MGE's Shared Solar program is expanding with a second, large-scale solar installation at Middleton Municipal Airport, also known as Morey Field. Residential and business electric customers can purchase up to half of their annual electric usage from the project. 

Here's how it works: Participants pay a one-time, up-front fee to reserve a portion of the electricity produced and pay $0.109 per kilowatt-hour for 25 years, even if they move within the MGE electric service territory.

A new goal, a new name

This month, energy2030together.com turns three years old! The website and companion newsletter have featured the latest Energy 2030-related news from MGE as well as energy-saving tips and more! It was launched to share how we can work together to advance our Energy 2030 framework for a cleaner energy future.

In May, MGE announced a new goal – net-zero carbon electricity by 2050. So, we've renamed our newsletter Energy 2050 Together to reflect our target beyond 2030. You can find it online at mge2050.com. Our objectives under our Energy 2030 framework still guide our work toward building your community energy company for the future:

  • Provide customers with options they want today and in the future,
