Drive an EV? Save with MGE’s Charge Ahead

Customers can earn rewards by charging “off-peak.” 

If you drive an electric vehicle (EV), consider joining MGE’s Charge Ahead program—and get rewarded.  

Participating customers (on a standard rate) who charge their EVs during off-peak hours (weekdays from 9 p.m. to 10 a.m. plus weekends and holidays) can earn up to $8 per month in the summer and $4 per month the rest of the year.  

With smart charging, customers set a charging schedule, and their EV is ready by the time they need it. MGE’s Charge Ahead program uses a software platform to communicate with the EV, allowing MGE to optimize when the vehicle is charging.   

By working with customers to manage charging to correspond to the needs of the electric grid, MGE is able to shift charging to periods when demand for electricity is lower—and typically lower cost.
