Environmental leadership is one of our guiding principles at SMUD. We help customers become more efficient users of energy, we use a balanced and sustainable mix of energy sources, and we help reduce the amount of greenhouse gases produced locally. You can read the SMUD Board Policy on Environmental Leadership.

Renewable Energy

Energy produced from natural, renewable sources like the sun, wind, and biomass means less reliance on fossil fuels and cleaner air. They will play an increasingly large role in our community's energy future.
