MGE Sets Electric Vehicle Fleet Goal

Hybrid Step Van

MGE's new step van with battery-powered auxiliary equipment is used primarily by crews working on MGE's underground electric network system in downtown Madison. The battery-powered equipment prevents vehicle idling while crews perform their work.

Our regulated utility, Madison Gas and Electric (MGE), has been advancing alternative fuel vehicles since the launch of its public charging network for electric vehicles more than a decade ago. MGE continues to add cleaner vehicles to its fleet, where possible. 

The company has set a fleet goal of 100% all-electric or plug-in hybrid light-duty vehicles by 2030. The electrification of transportation is a key strategy for achieving deep decarbonization. 

MGE's fleet includes a plug-in electric pickup truck and a Ford C-Max, a step van and bucket trucks with battery-powered technology, and all-electric passenger vehicles including Chevy Bolts.
