2023 Rate Case

MGE’s rate filing for 2024-2025

MGE takes seriously our responsibility to provide safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy. We are sensitive to the impacts our costs have on our customers, especially our customers who struggle to meet essential needs. We continue working hard to contain costs throughout the organization while advancing cleaner energy for the benefit of all our customers. As your community energy company, MGE considers the well-being of our community and those we serve a primary focus of our company. 
This spring, MGE filed a request with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) to adjust electric and natural gas rates in 2024 and 2025. The request also includes proposals for new and updated customer programs and services, including an Energy Customer Assistance Program, which is in addition to our ongoing efforts to help vulnerable customers. The PSCW is reviewing the rate case and is expected to make a decision on it later this year.
Energy affordability, or energy burden, is important to MGE. It is an issue that we have been working to address and that we will continue to address and manage as we transition our energy supply to cleaner sources. We're working to achieve greater sustainability and to manage long-term costs by growing our use of carbon-free, renewable energy, which carries no fuel costs and serves to reduce rate volatility and manage long-term costs into the future.
A cleaner, smarter grid is part of our strategy for working together with our customers to achieve our goals of at least an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and net-zero carbon electricity by 2050. By 2030, we expect every MGE electric customer will have 80% fewer carbon emissions from their electricity use simply by being an MGE customer.
