Your business is a great place to start building a better tomorrow. Show your support and commitment to sustainable initiatives and benefit from lower fuel and maintenance costs.
Installing charging stations at your business can create a selling point for employees and potential hires to charge their vehicles at work. Not only do EV chargers position you as a forward-thinking employer who prioritizes sustainability, they also can help differentiate you in a competitive labor market.
More businesses are using EVs to move people and products. The benefits are substantial to business fleets, from reducing fuel and maintenance costs to highlighting your company's commitment to sustainability.
We can provide your business with a fleet analysis, free of charge, to see if EVs could be a smart addition to your fleet.
Our analysis provides estimated energy usage, cost savings and reduction in greenhouse emissions, as well as recommendations for EVs and charging infrastructure.
Within our own fleet, MGE has "walked the talk" by adding all-electric EVs to our fleet and learning what it takes to operate EVs in a real-world work environment. We continue to add cleaner vehicles to our fleet, where possible, and are targeting a goal of 100% all-electric or plug-in hybrid light-duty vehicles by 2030. Our fleet includes all-electric and plug-in EVs, electric forklifts, as well as medium- and heavy-duty trucks with battery-powered technology.
Businesses also may be eligible for incentives and government rebates that can lower your overall costs. We can help you navigate your best rate options, charging equipment and charging times to see if an EV makes sense for your business. We also are offering an EV Fleet rate to our business customers. This new rate provides a reduction in demand charges over a period of time, which gives customers time to understand their unique charging behavior and to make changes to minimize demand charges. To qualify, customers must own or lease plug-in hybrid or all-electric vehicles and the charging station(s) must be metered separately from the rest of the business. For more information, please contact your MGE account manager.

Renters will be attracted to the option to charge their EVs at home. Since more than 80% of charging happens at home, many area property owners and developers are installing EV charging stations as a way to keep current residents and attract new ones. In addition, beginning in 2021, Madison developers are also required to include EV charging equipment in newly-constructed multifamily residential lots (as well as other commercial spaces) as outlined in the ordinance.
MGE can help you evaluate your building, parking and electrical requirements as well as help you understand how EV charging may affect your monthly usage. We can also assist with EV charging infrastructure.
