For nearly 70 years, SMUD has provided safe, reliable and low-cost electric power to the Sacramento Region.

But did you know that the community-owned, not-for-profit eclectic service, is also a small businesses supporter and driver of regional economic development?  Just last year, SMUD reinvested over $67 million into the local business community through its small business contracting program, called SEED.  And that’s just the beginning. SMUD is enhancing its commitment to accelerating innovation and entrepreneurship in the Sacramento region. They play a key role in our region’s efforts to attract, expand and retain companies, creating and sustaining employment opportunities for our communities. Then add in the fact that they have some of the lowest electricity rates in California, with best-in-class energy efficiency programs and expertise, and industry-leading renewable energy portfolio. It’s easy to see why SMUD is such a phenomenal booster of economic vitality in the Capital region.
