Electric Vehicle (EV) Fast Charger Hub Coming to Downtown Madison

Site will feature some of the fastest charging stations in the Midwest!

Construction of a new electric vehicle (EV) fast charging hub in the heart of Madison's Capitol East District is underway. Located at the intersection of East Washington Avenue and South Livingston Street, the Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) hub is expected to begin serving EV drivers later this year.
"Our new fast charging hub will provide convenient EV charging—powered by renewable energy—for nearby apartment and condo dwellers and single-family households, commuters, taxi and ridesharing services as well as EV fleet vehicles that travel a gateway to our capital city," said Debbie Branson, MGE Manager of Electrification. "Electrification is a key strategy for reducing carbon emissions and achieving net-zero carbon electricity by mid-century. Quick and easy EV charging will help to enable the growth of cleaner, more sustainable transportation options."

About the hub

The hub will feature eight fast charger stalls with some of the most powerful chargers in the Midwest. And, through a partnership with Tesla, the hub also will feature eight Superchargers.

Public charging discount available

EV drivers who sign up with MGE are eligible to receive 50% off the cost of charging at MGE's 45 wind-powered public charging stations, including MGE's five fast charging stations across the area and the chargers at the upcoming charging hub.
