The MGE lobby is currently closed

In the interest of public health and safety, our lobby is temporarily closed.

Need assistance or need to make a payment?

Please visit the Customer Service section of or call us at 608-252-7222 and we will make every effort to get you what you need by phone. Representatives are available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We also understand that the pandemic could impact the livelihoods of those we serve and access to in-person customer service due to our lobby closure. We will continue to work with customers experiencing hardship and those impacted by this temporary closure. 

  • If you are behind on your bill, call us to set up a personalized payment arrangement. Your ability to pay something now, even if minimal, and an established payment arrangement means you will not be charged late payment fees or be subject to disconnection. Please call 608-252-7144 to request one.  
  • MGE is assessing late fees on past-due balances incurred beginning April 1, 2021, for customer accounts without an established payment arrangement. 
  • MGE is not disconnecting services to residential customers at this time.
Please call our customer service representatives at 608-252-7222 if you have questions or concerns related to your account. Representatives are available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
