Let's Share Solar, Sign Up Today
The Morey Field Solar project will produce enough clean energy to power about 1,100 households.
Our Shared Solar program is expanding with a new 5-megawatt solar array this year near the Middleton Municipal Airport in the city of Middleton.
How it works
- MGE residential and business electric customers reserve a portion of the energy produced by the array by subscribing to this voluntary program.
- It's easy and affordable, with a low up-front cost per share and a stable electricity rate that won't increase for 25 years.
- Visit mge.com/sharedsolar to access our FAQ and to sign up. Participation is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants can purchase up to half of their annual electricity use through Shared Solar.
MGE's first Shared Solar installation is on the roof of Middleton's Municipal Operations Center. The program sold out quickly in 2016. We're looking forward to welcoming more participants in 2020!
Advancing our shared energy goals
Seventy percent of the Morey Field Solar project will serve the Shared Solar program. The remaining 30% of the array will deliver clean energy to the City of Middleton and the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District under MGE's Renewable Energy Rider (RER). Under the program, MGE partners with a large energy user to tailor a renewable energy solution to meet the customer's energy needs.
Shared Solar and RER participants are helping MGE advance our goal of reducing carbon emissions. MGE is targeting net-zero carbon electricity by 2050. If we can go further faster by working with our customers, we will.
