Electric Vehicles
plug-in

Electric Vehicles: The city of Madison has an environmental friendly infrastructure. It offers residents access and options so that they can meet their daily transportation needs while helping the environment.

In recent years, no doubt, electric vehicles have become an option to consider when thinking of buying a new car. MGE has prepared for this trend by installing a network of 27 public charging stations. Electric cars do not emit  CO2  because they use electricity to run.  Also, electricity is less expensive per mile driven than gasoline or diesel fuel. Therefore driving an electric car reduces CO2 emissions and fuel costs.
