Local Financing Program Promotes Electric Car Purchase

Madison Gas & Electric (MGE) has installed ample electric car charging infrastructure with 31 electric vehicle charging stations powered by 100 percent wind energy across the city and a mobile app to locate them. Electric vehicles reduce dependence on foreign oil and tailpipe emissions that harm human health. To grow the electric vehicle market locally, MGE, Wisconsin Clean Cities and Zimbrick Eastside Nissan announced a special offer that began in August on 2016 Nissan LEAF® SV electric vehicles. This discount, coupled with available federal tax savings, allows drivers to save nearly 50% on a new, all-electric LEAF. The offer ends 9/30/2016. For more details
