MGE Adds More Solar to its Grid with Fitchburg Project


Madison Gas and Electric’s (MGE) latest solar array, the 6 MW Tyto Solar in Fitchburg, Wis., is fully operational and delivering energy to MGE’s grid.

“This project is another step in our journey toward net-zero carbon electricity for all MGE electric customers,” says MGE’s Jeff Keebler. “Our target is reduced carbon emissions. Under our commitment, by 2030, every MGE electric customer will have 80 percent fewer carbon emissions associated with their electricity use simply by being an MGE customer. Everyone we serve will reap the benefits of a cleaner grid as we invest cost-effectively for a net-zero carbon future.”

Tyto Solar uses bifacial panels with a tracking system programmed to rotate with the sun.

OneEnergy Renewables developed and constructed the project.
