Shared Solar Program

Our new solar option is worth waiting for!

An expansion of our Shared Solar program is in the planning stages! Shared Solar offers the benefits of locally generated solar power without having to install panels on your home.

Participation in our innovative and affordable solar program is easy. Stay tuned for details as we work toward a second Shared Solar project.

Join our waiting list and be among the first to learn about how to participate. This limited opportunity will be available to customers on a first-come, first-served basis.

Features of Shared Solar

MGE's Shared Solar program gives customers the option to add solar-generated electricity to their individual energy mix. The program sold out quickly in 2016. The 500-kilowatt (kW), 1,700 solar panel array on the roof of the City of Middleton Municipal Operations Center began generating energy in early 2017.

Participants pay a one-time, up-front fee to reserve some of the electricity produced and a fixed rate of $0.12 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for up to 50 percent of their annual electric usage (dependent upon the amount purchased). This rate stays with subscribing customers for 25 years, even if they move within the MGE electric service territory.

Supporting Clean Technology

The clean, renewable energy generated through Shared Solar helps the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helps to manage fuel costs that can increase over time.

This partnership with customers and the City of Middleton also advances MGE's long-term framework, Energy 2030, under which we have set the goal of supplying 30% of our retail electric sales with renewable energy by 2030. Working together, we can reach our shared goal of a cleaner energy future.

Energy Production

Our Shared Solar production chart below displays the amount of electrical power in kilowatts (kW) by time of day as well as the total electric energy produced today in kilowatt-hours (kWh).
