SMUD Power Alert
Currently there are no rotating outages. Should we need to implement rotating outages due a power emergency, this page will be updated to show which sections are impacted. Rotating outages help protect the stability of our power grid and lower the risk of widespread outages.
Each outage lasts approximately 1 hour, then rotates to another section(s). More than one section may experience an outage at the same time.

SMUD EV Incentive Program
A rebate project to increase access to electric vehicle (EV) chargers throughout Sacramento County is launching with up to $15.5 million in funds available for qualifying local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
The rebates will be available through the Sacramento County Incentive Project to install both commercial-grade Level 2 chargers and high-powered DC fast chargers.
