SMUD Introduces a Feed In Tariff for 2010

The posted tariffs will be adjusted in November of 2009 to reflect SMUD’s revision of its wholesale costs of generation.

Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) plans a Feed In Tariff for 2010, up to 100 MW total, with time differentiated tariffs, and green bonuses. Project sizes up to 5 MW, with these key differences from the Southern California Edison pilot program:

  • Contract Terms: 10, 15, 20 years
  • Time Differentiated Tariffs
  • No Technology Differentiation
  • Tariffs based on avoided cost, value-based tariffs
  • Includes tariffs for Combined Heat & Power
