EV Charging at Your House

As much as 80% of EV charging happens at drivers' homes! It's easy to plug in to a standard outlet every time you pull into your garage. This type of charging, known as Level 1 (L1), can give you between 3 to 5 miles of range per hour.

Installing a 240-volt outlet, which is commonly used by household appliances like an oven or electric dryer, or a Level 2 (L2) home charging station in your garage are great options to charge more quickly. L2 chargers are faster than using a standard electrical outlet and offer you more control over your charging times.

MGE's Charge@Home Program

MGE can help you charge faster and more easily with our Charge@Home program. We install ChargePoint L2 chargers at your home in exchange for a monthly fee of about $20 plus the cost of electricity. You pay no upfront cost, and we handle everything from installation to maintenance. If you're looking for convenience and peace of mind, Charge@Home is the way to go! Learn more.


EV Charging at Your Apartment

Since more than 50% of Madison residents are renters, more apartment buildings are adding EV charging to their amenities. Plus, many area property owners and developers are installing EV charging stations to meet the needs of current residents while attracting new ones.

Resources for property owners and developers

MGE can help property owners and developers evaluate building, parking and electrical requirements, as well as help determine how EV charging may affect monthly electric usage. We also can assist with EV charging infrastructure and navigate Madison's new ordinance in which developers are required to include EV charging equipment in newly-constructed multifamily residential lots (as well as other commercial spaces) as outlined.

EV Charging at Your Condo

Many condo owners and homeowners' associations (HOAs) are considering adding EV charging to their buildings. Condos can present some unique challenges because parking stalls are often individually owned and located on multiple parking levels. Condos with attached garages like townhomes or duplexes may be eligible for MGE's Charge@Home program.

Resources for condo owners and HOAs

Follow these steps to evaluate and implement an EV charging solution at your condo property:

  • Get feedback from condo owners—MGE can help you with an electronic survey.
  • Contact an electrician to evaluate electrical capacity and provide cost estimates.
  • Evaluate charging station options that will best meet the needs of your property. Contact Brian Driscoll at MGE with questions.
  • Determine who is paying for the electricity—separate meters or power sharing platforms provide different options.
