MGE To Build 8 MW Solar Farm for City of Madison & School District

The City of Madison and Madison Metropolitan School District are contracting with MGE to purchase all the electricity from an 8 MW, $15.3 million solar farm on 53 acres under MGE’s Renewable Energy Rider. This ensures that project costs will not be borne by MGE’s other ratepayers. The City will use almost two- thirds of the output and the school district 37.5 percent starting the end of 2021. Wsj
