Solar Project Planned for Madison Area
MGE is partnering with the City of Madison and the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) on a 7-megawatt (MW), 26,000 solar panel array that will produce enough renewable energy to serve nearly 20% of City operations and about 16% of MMSD operations.
The project is being developed under MGE's Renewable Energy Rider (RER). RERs enable MGE to partner with a large energy user to tailor a renewable energy solution to meet that customer's energy needs. The innovative model helps to grow clean energy in our community.
Building local solar to serve our customers is one of the many ways we are working together to reach our shared energy goals, including MGE's goal of net-zero carbon electricity by 2050.
