Our Energy Use

Using energy efficiently and conserving it are some of the most critical actions we all can take to reduce our environmental footprint and save money. Energy efficiency is recognized as a key strategy for reducing carbon dioxide emissions. MGE is targeting net-zero carbon electricity by 2050.


And, if we control and reduce our energy use—individually and collectively—we will help to reduce costs for all of us in the long run. Working together, we can have a positive impact on our energy use, our community and our environment.
