Residential Natural Gas Rates

MGE is serious about our responsibility to provide safe, reliable natural gas service at competitive prices. We work hard to control our costs. In 2018, 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 (PSCW) reviewed and approved the settlement agreement, setting our electric and gas rates.

Effective Jan. 1, 2019, natural gas rates increased slightly. Natural gas rates also will increase slightly in 2020.
