Madison Gas & Electric Completes Wind Farm

July 1999 - Madison Gas & Electric (MGE) has completed construction of 17 wind turbines, totaling 11.22 MW, in northeastern Wisconsin that will provide green power to its customers. According to a July 1 article in the Wisconsin State Journal, more than 4,000 customers have signed up to purchase 7,000 blocks of power or more than one-third of the power available through the program. The utility is selling the power in 150-kWh blocks for $5.00 each — a premium of 3.3¢/kWh over the standard electricity rate. In addition, all customers are being charged about 20 cents more per month to help pay for the $15 million project.
