  • 2030 Clean Energy Vision

    For decades, SMUD has been a leader in clean energy and carbon reduction. Our 2030 Zero Carbon Vision continues this commitment.

    Our goal is to reach zero carbon emissions in our power supply by 2030 – the most ambitious goal of any large utility in the United States.

    This ambitious goal puts the Sacramento Region on the map as an example to follow and a region where innovative, climate-friendly businesses want to be.

    Going absolute zero carbon is a bold and ambitious goal – one we believe we can and must achieve.

  • SMUD is a great place to work. Here are a few reasons why:


    • Competitive pay and benefits
    • Challenging and fulfilling work
    • Flexible work schedules
    • An inclusive and diverse culture
    • An appealing region in which to live
    • SMUD's reputation as a national energy leader
  • Energy Careers Pathways Program

    We're partnering with local leaders to beautify Sacramento public spaces and bring solar energy, shade and clean energy jobs to underserved communities.  

    The program provides adult students with the hands-on technical skills needed to work in the solar energy field. Students receive classroom education, preliminary hands-on training in the installation “solar tree”  arrays and, upon graduation, opportunities to interview with industry employers.
