SMUD Virtual Energy Assessments
As the world changes, SMUD has worked hard to adapt in-person energy assessments to a virtual format to comply with COVID-19 safety protocols to keep our businesses, customers, and employees safe. 
SMUD is offering free energy assessments, conducted by regional representatives alongside with you, is an opportunity to examine your facility to discover opportunities for energy savings and recommendations that can lead to cost-savings on your monthly bill. The great news is, SMUD representatives are still able to offer this valuable service, but now contact-less and virtual. 
I encourage you to learn more about SMUD's virtual energy assessments and to schedule your online session by visiting
