Developing Utility Scale Renewable Energy Projects

Renewable energy projects in SMUD's service area that are 5 MW and smaller SMUD has a new Feed-In Tariff which is a standard, published set of rates that we'll pay for solar and other renewable power generated by customers or others in our service area. Projects can be up to 5 MW in size and still qualify for the Feed-In Tariff rates. Read the SMUD Feed-In Tariff.

Information on SMUD's Project Interconnection Process can be found here.
