Residential Electric Rates

MGE takes seriously our responsibility to provide safe, reliable energy at reasonable rates. We work hard to control our costs. In 2020, MGE worked with intervening parties to file a rate settlement agreement to resolve all issues in MGE's rate case. The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin reviewed and approved the settlement agreement, setting our electric and gas rates. Electric rates remain unchanged in 2021.
