SolarShares® for homes

Neighborhood SolarShares

A new solar option for builders and developers is coming soon.

SMUD’s Neighborhood SolarShares program allows builders and developers of new homes to secure utility scale solar from SMUD to meet the solar mandate from the 2019 California Building Standards Code (effective January 1st, 2020). If your home or community is a Neighborhood SolarShares community, you can learn more about your features and benefits. If you are a builder or developer, you can learn about the program and how to apply.

Residential SolarShares for existing homes

Our residential SolarShares program is being redesigned and is not available at this time.

Clean, environmentally friendly solar energy should be available and affordable for everyone but putting a solar system on your roof is not always an option. SMUD’s SolarShares gives everyone the opportunity to benefit from the sun’s power whether you rent or own your home.
