Instead of spending time at a gas station, most EV owners charge at home (as much as 80%). Installing a Level 2 charging station in your garage is the way to go. Level 2 chargers are up to six times faster than using a standard electrical outlet and offer you more control over your charging times.
MGE's Charge@Home program installs Level 2 chargers for our customers in exchange for a monthly fee of about $20 plus the cost of electricity. There is no up-front charge for standard installation. Learn more.
Condo owners love EVs too. Check out our story about two Madison-area condominium complexes that have added chargers to their parking garage.
More apartment buildings are adding EV charging to their lists of amenities. Check out abodo.com, that provides information about available chargers at local apartments.
Charging your EV when you're not at home has become easier and faster than ever. There are more than 50 public charging stations in the Madison area – many of which are in MGE's network. There are also several DC fast chargers in town which give you 60 to 80 miles of range in about 20 minutes.
