MGE Adding More Pole-Mounted EV Chargers

Chargers offer convenient curbside charging in Madison neighborhoods. 

MGE’s public charging network, powered by renewable energy, continues to grow with more pole-mounted electric vehicle (EV) charging stations planned for Madison neighborhoods. The chargers, which attach to existing MGE utility poles, offer residents easy curbside charging. MGE’s first pole-mounted charging station was installed last fall on Madison’s East side near Worthington Park.  

Studies show that about 80% of EV charging happens at home. This can be challenging for drivers who don’t have a garage or dedicated parking. That’s why MGE and the City of Madison partnered to find locations that could benefit from easy access to curbside charging.  

Stay tuned to for more information about the chargers expected soon!
