Shared Solar Expansion Planned

Join our "Worth Waiting For" list.

Shared Solar Logo MGE is planning an expansion of its Shared Solar program. If you're interested in adding solar power to your energy mix, we think Shared Solar is worth waiting for!

Shared Solar gives electric customers the opportunity to support locally generated solar energy. Our program launched in early 2017 with a 500-kilowatt array on the roof of the City of Middleton's Municipal Operations Center. Shared Solar participants subscribed to receive a share of their electricity through the program, which sold out quickly.

Now, we are building a waiting list to expand Shared Solar. If you would like to be among the first to learn about how to participate, join our "Worth Waiting For" list at

Support local, clean energy

Shared Solar helps grow solar in our community. It's also easy and convenient. Current subscribers paid a one-time upfront fee to participate and pay a fixed rate per kilowatt-hour for up to half of their annual electricity use. 

Solar panelsSupport for Shared Solar also advances MGE’s Energy 2030 framework for a more sustainable future. Under Energy 2030, we are working with customers to grow our use of renewable energy to 30% by 2030. We also are targeting carbon reductions of at least 40% from 2005 levels by 2030. Beyond 2030, we are targeting carbon reductions of at least 80% by 2050. Working together, we can reach these goals.

Stay tuned to for details as we work to expand our Shared Solar program.
