CG Schmidt, a construction management company with offices in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is taking another step toward greater sustainability, partnering with Madison Gas and Electric to purchase solar energy from a 5-megawatt solar array at Middleton Municipal Airport in Middleton, Wisconsin.
CG Schmidt’s 129 shares of local solar will help power its Madison operations with clean energy and will offset about 65,000 pound of carbon dioxide annually.
The Morey Field Solar project is the second array in MGE’s popular Shared Solar program. The expansion of the program gives residential and business customers throughout MGE’s electric service territory the option of powering their homes or businesses with locally generated solar energy.
MGE’s first Shared Solar project is a 500-kilowatt array on the roof of Middleton’s Municipal Operations Center. It began serving customers in January of 2017.
