As the nation’s sixth-largest community-owned electric service provider, SMUD has been providing low-cost, reliable electricity for more than 65 years to Sacramento County (and small adjoining portions of Placer and Yolo Counties). SMUD is a recognized industry leader and award winner for its innovative energy efficiency programs, renewable power technologies, and for its sustainable solutions for a healthier environment. SMUD is the first large California utility to receive more than 20 percent of its energy from renewable resources.
We've been delivering power to customers in our region since 1946, but our history goes back much further than that. In 1923, citizens voted to create SMUD as a community-owned electric service, but years of engineering studies, political battles and legal wrangling delayed SMUD's purchase of PG&E's local electrical system.
In March 1946, the California Supreme Court denied PG&E's final petition to halt the sale, and nine months later SMUD finally began operations. Since then, we have helped power the region's explosive growth, met the challenges of the energy crisis and become a nationwide leader in green energy and conservation.
