Partnership With Schools

MGE is pleased to provide K-12 educators whose schools are served by MGE gas and electricity with a broad range of energy education materials and services. We educate customers today to help inform their energy decision making. And, we educate tomorrow’s stakeholders so they can help plan our energy future.

The MGE Foundation helps to advance sustainability in our community. This support includes funding the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays on high schools in our electric service area as well as at Badger Rock Middle School.
