About SMUD For over 75 years, this community-owned, not-for-profit electric service has delivered on a fundamental promise: to provide Sacramento with safe, reliable electricity at affordable rates.

SMUD owns 732 MW of hydro capacity. Its Upper American River Project consists of 11 dams and nine powerhouses that tap the upper tributaries of the American River drainage in the Sierra Nevada for power generation. The total installed capacity is over 688 MW, and it produces 1.8 billion KWh annually during an average rainfall year, which is enough electricity to power 20% of Sacramento’s electrical needs.
