Sign up for Shared Solar

Our Shared Solar program is expanding! State regulators have approved MGE's plans to build a 5-megawatt (MW) solar array at the Middleton Municipal Airport in the City of Middleton. The popular program already has a waiting list of customers interested in locally generated clean energy with minimal upfront cost.

An expansion of the Shared Solar program with an array at the Middleton Municipal Airport will help deliver more local, renewable energy to our community grid.

"An expansion of Shared Solar is another step toward meeting our goal of net-zero carbon electricity by the year 2050," said MGE Chairman, President and CEO Jeff Keebler. "We look forward to building on the program's success and to welcoming new Shared Solar participants." 

 

How it works

  • Seventy percent of the large solar array at Morey Field will serve the Shared Solar program. It will deliver energy to our community grid.
  • MGE residential and business electric customers reserve a portion of the energy produced by the array by subscribing to this voluntary program. 

How to join

  • Shared Solar is easy and affordable. Participants can purchase up to half of their annual electricity use through the program. 
  • Visit mge.com/sharedsolar to access our FAQs and to sign up. Participation is available on a first-come, first-served basis.


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 customers!

 

Project advances shared energy goals

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.
