Solar power for your home
SMUD customers have three different ways to bring the power of the sun into their homes:
Option 1: Buy it
If you own your home and plan to be in it for awhile, consider buying a solar rooftop system to generate all or part of your electricity. And, if your installed system generates more electricity than you consume, SMUD will purchase the excess that flows back into the electricity grid.
Option 3: Rent it
Enjoy the benefits of solar power without having to buy or lease it. Simply sign up for SolarShares®. For a fixed monthly price, based on your electricity usage, SolarShares will credit your monthly bill for solar power produced on a local "solar farm" in Sacramento County.
Shopping for a new home?
Your best value in a new home may just be a SMUD SolarSmart Home®. SolarSmart Homes combine money-saving energy efficiency features with a built-in rooftop solar electric system. These combine to save you up to 60 percent in yearly energy bills as compared to comparable new homes on the market. SolarSmart Homes offer long-term comfort, savings and value.
