MGE Ups the Ante to 100% Net Zero Carbon by 2050

MGE announced a goal of net zero carbon by 2050 at its May shareholder meeting, increasing its previous goal of an 80 percent carbon reduction by 2050. It will work with scientists at UW-Madison’s Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences to evaluate the goal. Four cities in MGE’s territory, Madison, Middleton, Monona and Fitchburg, have goals of 100 percent clean energy for local government operations and, for most, city-wide, before 2050. MGE
