Electric Vehicles: The city of Madison has an environmentally 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.


  • Reduced gasoline use. Most gasoline comes from foreign sources. Electricity generation uses domestic fuels.
  • Lower fuel costs. Electricity is less expensive per mile driven than gasoline or diesel fuel.
  • Reduced air emissions. And you can offset electricity emissions by buying green power for your home and vehicle charging through MGE’s Green Power Tomorrow program.
  • MGE has installed a network of 27 public charging stations. See charging station map or find public charging stations in U.S. by downloading the Alternative Fueling Station Locator app for iPhone.
  • Powered by 100% wind energy, they are available to extend your car’s driving range.
  • 26 stations offer Level 2 (240 volt) charging. Some of these stations also offer Level 1 (120 volt) charging.
  • One station is a DC Quick Charger. Only CHAdeMO-capable vehicles can use this station (Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi i-MiEV).
