Earn $50+

MGE will reward you for conserving energy by making small, temporary adjustments to your smart thermostat during peak energy demand.

Stay in control.

You can opt out of thermostat adjustments at any time from your mobile device, web browser or thermostat.

Connected thermostats make it easy and convenient to manage your home’s energy use. You can adjust your thermostat on the go or allow it to set an automatic schedule that optimizes your energy usage based on your routine.

MGE is powering a cleaner, smarter future through the use of new technologies. Join MGE Connect® to help our community reach shared energy goals! You will receive a $25 e-gift card when you enroll with a qualifying thermostat that allows minor, short-term temperature adjustments to reduce usage during periods of high electricity demand. In most cases you won't notice the adjustments and you'll always have ultimate control. As long as you remain enrolled in the program you will receive up to an additional $25 each year for participating. Customers with multiple thermostats controlling a single air-conditioning unit are only eligible for one participation incentive.

By participating, you help save energy and help protect the environment without sacrificing comfort. Everyone wins with MGE Connect — if we can reduce peak demand, we can better manage long-term costs, reduce carbon emissions and enable a more efficient electric grid.
