“This partnership between MGE, the City of Madison and MMSD is another great example of how working together we can advance shared energy goals and achieve net-zero carbon electricity for all of our customers by 2050,” MG&E chairman Jeff Keebler said in a statement.
Similar to MG&E’s “net-zero” goal of 2050, MMSD is hoping to turn 50% of its energy needs into renewable energy by the year 2030, 75% renewable energy by 2035 and 100% by 2040.
