A Learning EVent Off the Square

Tour electric vehicles with MGE Sept. 15.

Americans are on pace to buy more than 200,000 new electric vehicles (EVs) in a single year for the first time in 2018—and it's easy to see why. EVs represent the latest in innovation with lower—or no—emissions, less maintenance cost, and they are fun to drive.

Your chance to explore a number of different EVs all in one place is coming up! Join MGE to learn about the benefits of EVs from those who drive them. The Madison Area National Drive Electric Week event is free to attend.

Saturday, Sept. 15
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. (off the Capitol Square)
Downtown Madison

Dozens of local EV owners and dealers will have more than 40 models of vehicles on display—from sedans, to crossovers and SUVs. And, they'll be available to answer questions.

MGE's EV experts also will have on display our all-electric Chevy Bolt, which can travel up to 238 miles on a single battery charge and go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in fewer than 7 seconds. The annual event is held in partnership with National Drive Electric Week, which runs September 8 through 16.

More EV charging options

The number of EVs hitting the road continues to grow. MGE is making it easier for drivers to plug in by offering different charging options. 

Our experts will have information about MGE's network of 30 public charging stations. The ChargePoint network is powered by 100% wind energy and includes three DC Fast Chargers that provide 60-to-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes.

MGE also has installed nearly 50 EV chargers at customers' homes through our Charge@Home program. Some of those customers also will be on hand to talk about the convenience of faster charging at home. MGE installs, owns and maintains the chargers. Charge@Home customers pay a monthly fee of $20 plus the cost of their electricity usage.

We hope to see you September 15!
