Feed-In Tariffs (Business)
Under a Feed-In Tariff (FIT), utilities such as SMUD offer standard published rates and contract terms for the purchase of electricity made from renewable energy resources and combined heat-power installations. SMUD's Feed-In Tariff is for eligible renewable energy resources and qualifying combined heat and power installations up to 5 MW.
SMUD No Longer Accepting FIT Applications
Effective August 4, 2010, SMUD has suspended the acceptance of new feed-in-tariff applications.

SMUD's Feed-In Tariff Queue is Full
Thanks to everyone who has submitted proposals for SMUD’s Feed-In Tariff. SMUD has now received enough applications for both the “A” pool and “B” pool to fill our Feed-In Tariff queue. Applications are no longer being accepted.
In the event that an application that currently has a reserved position is dropped, the next application with an unreserved position will be given an opportunity to get the released reserved position.
If you have a project and want to submit a proposal to SMUD, you may do so as an "unsolicited offer," which is a different process than for our Feed-In Tariff. See RFO and Unsolicited Offers if you are interested in submitting an unsolicited offer.
