Can MGE and Madison Agree on Goals?
July 17, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
An agreement between the City of Madison and MGE is being discussed at the next Sustainable Madison Committee (SMC) meeting.
There are concerns with the proposed agreement. The current language is weak, and it does not compel MGE to make any changes. Critically, the draft fails to mention utility rates, despite mandatory fees being the issue that initiated these discussions. Surprisingly, “Coal” is also missing from the discussion even though Madison gets about 2/3rds of its electricity from MGE’s coal-fired power plants.
Due to these issues, we are asking for public support to attend this SMC meeting to voice concerns over the agreement and ask for MGE and the City to revise the agreement to accommodate stronger language and include these important topics that are currently missing.
The meeting is on July 17th at the City County Building, Room 351. We hope to see you there!
The agenda for the meeting is now available.
