How Solar Power Works in Sacramento
Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) purchases all of the energy generated from four separate systems located on sites in Sacramento County, California. The utility scale solar project is part of SMUD’s Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program. Through SMUD’s FIT program, 100 MW of solar PV has been developed and installed in Sacramento County. An additional 100 MW of solar has been developed and installed in California. SMUD introduced the program in 2010 to offer standard rates and contract terms for renewable energy generation.
