ESG/Ethical Impact

We’re not just an electric utility. As a not-for-profit, community-owned business, we’re focused on the quality of life for our customers and the communities we serve. SMUD’s IRP filing lays out an ambitious road map for lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the Sacramento region while maintaining low rates and reliability. In July 2020, the SMUD Board of Directors adopted a climate emergency declaration that works toward a goal of carbon neutral electricity by 2030. Our power mix is among the cleanest in the country. In 2020, SMUD’s power supply was more than 60% carbon free. And by continuing to add renewables like solar, wind, biomass and geothermal, we plan to be 100% carbon free by 2030. This isn’t all we’re doing. By supporting energy efficiency, electrification of buildings and transportation and increasing our clean power sources, we’re helping improve the air quality throughout the Sacramento region. California is a national leader in greenhouse gas reduction, and SMUD’s goals are even more ambitious than those set forth by the state legislature. By utilizing more renewable resources, we’re helping to improve local air quality. Increasing the energy efficiency of our residential and business customers is an important part of this effort. SMUD’s Sustainable Communities initiative is helping bring environmental equity and economic vitality to each and every community in our service territory. Special attention is given to historically under-served neighborhoods.
