After a groundbreaking ceremony last fall, the pace of construction at the Middleton Municipal Airport picked up this spring. Work this spring and summer will include the installation of the racks, tracking system and solar panels.
The 5-megawatt Morey Field Solar array is set to begin serving our community grid this year. Seventy percent of the array will serve Shared Solar participants. The remaining 30 percent will serve the City of Middleton and the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District under two separate Renewable Energy Rider agreements.
Our community solar program is an option for MGE electric customers who run a business or who live in an apartment, condo or single-family home. Participants pay a one-time, up-front fee to reserve a portion of the electricity produced in Middleton and then pay a stable price for 25 years. Customers can join to receive up to half of their annual electricity use through Shared Solar. Get more information and sign up at mge.com/sharedsolar.
