Sign up for Shared Solar
From Madison Gas and Electric Company (MGE)

MGE's Shared Solar program is expanding! State regulators approved in June MGE's plans to
build a 5-megawatt (MW) solar array at the Middleton Municipal Airport in the City of
Middleton. The expansion of the program is another step toward our goal of net-zero carbon
electricity by the year 2050.

How it Works
Seventy percent of the large solar array at Middleton's Morey Field will serve the Shared
Solar program. It will deliver energy to our community grid. MGE residential and business
electric customers reserve a portion of the energy produced by the array by subscribing to
this voluntary program.

How to Join
Shared Solar is easy and affordable. Participants can purchase up to half of their annual
electricity use through the program. Visit to access frequently asked
questions and to sign up. The popular community solar program already has a waiting list of
customers interested in locally generated clean energy with minimal upfront cost. Participation
is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so sign up today!

Construction of the array is expected to begin this summer. We expect it to be operational this

MGE's first Shared Solar installation is on the roof of Middleton's Municipal Operations
Center. The program sold out quickly in 2016. We're looking forward to welcoming more

Shared Energy Goals
The remaining 30% of the array will deliver clean energy to the City of Middleton and the
Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District under MGE's Renewable Energy Rider. Under the
program, MGE partners with a large energy user to tailor a renewable energy solution to meet
the customer's energy needs.
