Natural Gas Service Expansion

Madison Gas and Electric wants to bring natural gas to your area

We are expanding our natural gas service to a number of locations near our service territory. This expansion has brought natural gas service to nearly 1,000 new customers over the past few years. These customers are now experiencing the cost savings, reliability and convenience that natural gas delivers.


Benefits of switching to natural gas

By switching to natural gas, you may be able to save significantly on your heating fuel budget. You'll also have convenient, reliable and safe service.

  • Financial: Over the past five years, natural gas prices have been less volatile than propane prices. MGE is able to provide natural gas with less volatility due to storage capacity as well as our ability to purchase from diverse locations and multiple suppliers. With natural gas, you will pay for the amount you use rather than paying up-front for heating fuel that can sit in your tank for months.
  • Convenience and reliability: No waiting for a delivery or fear of running out of propane. You will pay for the natural gas you use—after you use it. You won’t need to have a tank taking up space in your yard, or check on the level of fuel in your tank. MGE offers online billing and a budget payment plan, so you can easily pay your bills and distribute your annual costs more evenly.
  • Safety: MGE customers have been safely using natural gas for more than 65 years. Because natural gas is lighter than air, it rises and dissipates quickly. Propane is heavier and thus has the ability to pool in the event of a leak. MGE adds a chemical odor to the natural gas so it can be easily detected if there is a problem. In addition, MGE's emergency response is available 24 hours per day, 365 days per week.
