Sloughhouse Solar project groundbreaking

In June, we joined our partners at D.E. Shaw Renewable Investments (DESRI) to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Sloughhouse Solar project – a major milestone in SMUD’s 2030 Zero Carbon Plan!  

Pictured left to right: SMUD Chief Financial Officer Scott Martin, Chief Zero Carbon Officer Lora Anguay, Board President Rosanna Herber and Board Member Nancy-Bui Thompson joined the Sloughhouse Solar project groundbreaking.

Sloughhouse Solar will expand the renewable energy production already underway on this 400-acre site by 50 megawatts. When complete, the project will deliver more than 130 million kilowatt-hours per year of renewable energy to the community. That’s enough energy to power 12,000 homes or enough to take more than 19,000 cars off the road – all while allowing livestock to continue to graze. 

During the groundbreaking event, DESRI provided a $30,000 scholarship to the Mark Gall Memorial Fund. Mark was a dedicated SMUD employee who was instrumental in many renewable projects. The scholarship will help cultivate local workforce talent and support students in greater Sacramento who are interested in the renewable energy industry.
