To build on its zero waste initiative, the World’s Largest Brat Fest is partnering with MGE to use green power through wind and solar power.

According to a release, the Green Power Initiative will offset Brat Fest’s carbon emissions from electricity used to power the festival with green power.

Last year, Brat Fest reduced overall waste and converted 55 percent of all waste through recycling and composting.

In addition to using renewable energy, Brat Fest will have several electric vehicles for attendees to check out and learn more about the benefits of going electric.

MGE will have a booth at Brat Fest so people can learn about green energy projects and programs, electric vehicles and energy efficiency.

“With the previously introduced Zero Waste Initiative, partnering with MGE to power Brat Fest with green power is a great next step for an environmentally sustainable celebration,” the release said.

Green Cab will also be the sponsored cab of the festival. Green Cab will serve festival-goers and deliver brats to seniors on May 26.

Brat Fest will be May 24 to May 26.
