Regional Generating Capacity and Demand Reduction
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The program will focus on two areas: regional electricity impacts and providing enhanced products for customer choice. Sacramento County can be considered a region because of its unique climate and the fact that SMUD is virtually the sole provider of electrictiy within Sacramento County. SMUD's primary focus in the ReGen Program is on regional electricity impacts. Because of Sacramento's intense summer peak-period demand for electricity, the Program will develop products and technologies generating capacity. The Program will reduce Sacramento's demand for summertime electricity by developing new, less expensive photovoltaic technologies and installing them on homes and buildings throughout Sacramento. The Program will develop regional generating capacity by researching and developing new wind, biomass and solar thermal technologies that can be used within Sacramento and in the surrounding countryside inside and outside of the SMUD service territory. Many of these products and technologies , while well-suited for Sacramento and its unique climate, will also work well throughout California.
