Sustainable Home Technologies  

Learn about energy efficient appliances that run on electricity powered by a greener grid. 

Home energy technologies are changing rapidly—smart thermostats, energy efficient lighting and fast home charging for electric vehicles (EVs) are all helping us create a more sustainable future. Technology also is offering new opportunities to change the way we heat our homes, our water and even our food.  

Household appliances, such as furnaces, water heaters and stoves, have been traditionally powered by natural gas. Now there are newer, more efficient options available, such as heat pumps and induction cooktops, that run on electricity powered by a greener grid. As MGE continues to add more wind and solar energy to our community grid, households can reduce their carbon footprint by going electric at home.
