Cleaner Energy

We're growing our use of renewables, like solar and wind, to meet our community's energy needs. Since announcing our Energy 2030 framework, we've moved forward clean energy projects, including our Shared Solar program, Saratoga Wind Farm, Badger Hollow Solar Farm and Two Creeks Solar project


Through energy efficiency and conservation, cleaner energy sources and new technologies, we all can work together to achieve our ambitious goal of net-zero carbon electricity by 2050. 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.
