Cleaner Energy

We're pledging to increase the use of renewables, like solar and wind, to meet our community's energy needs. We plan to supply 30% of retail electric sales with renewable energy by 2030, and 25% by 2025. The 25% by 2025 goal is consistent with the renewable energy goals of communities we serve, including Madison, Middleton, Monona, Fitchburg and Dane County.

Through energy efficiency, conservation and cleaner energy sources, we all can work together to reduce carbon emissions 40% by 2030 from what they were in 2005. Work with MGE to support renewable energy and to learn how to use energy efficiently in your home or business for a more sustainable future for our community.

Transitioning from Coal

Under our Energy 2030 framework, we've pledged to continue our transition toward cleaner energy sources, which include renewable resources and natural gas, and move away from coal-fired resources. MGE is already taking steps to reduce our investment in coal.

Shared Solar Powers Up

With the array operational, anyone can go online to monitor its output. It's expected the array will generate about 740,000 kWh of electricity, which is enough to power about 100 homes. Check out our short video featuring an MGE engineer involved in the project.
