Sustainable Results

Environmental accountability is part of our culture at MGE. In 2014, MGE attained the designation as a Green Master from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council's Green Masters Program. MGE is one of 33 companies and the only utility in Wisconsin to be recognized as a Green Master.

At MGE, we set goals, take action and track progress. Through hard work and dedication, we produce sustainable environmental improvement over time. Efforts include our:

  • Green transportation fleet. We operate two hybrid electric distribution bucket trucks, two passenger-size electric vehicles, a small electric vehicle with hauling capacity and a variety of hybrid vehicles. MGE also tests alternative-fueled vehicles including compressed natural gas and biodiesel. We have about 50 trucks and off-road pieces of equipment that are powered by ultra-low sulfur biodiesel.
  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) at Blount Generating Station. The EMS is a voluntary framework that builds environmental accountability into our daily operations by establishing goals and measuring performance.
  • Green Team. At MGE, every employee is a member of the MGE Green Team. Employees are trained in how their individual actions at work can improve our environment.

More information about these sustainable actions is available in MGE's Environmental Responsibility Report.
