About Coyote Creek Agrivoltaic Ranch

WHAT: 200 megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) and 4 hour/100 megawatt battery energy storage system.  The project will deliver affordable, renewable energy to Sacramento Municipal Utility District customers – producing enough clean energy to power roughly 44,000 homes and displacing the equivalent of roughly 205,000 metric tons of carbon emissions each year. This is the equivalent of taking over 79,000 cars off the road.

WHERE: In the eastern area of Sacramento County – along sections of Scott Road.

The project site was carefully chosen to minimize impacts to the environment while supporting the state’s renewable energy and economic goals. We selected this location after analyzing other suitable sites and using selection criteria, including:

WHY: Solar energy is an abundant, sustainable source of zero-carbon electricity generation and it helps California reach its clean energy goals: By 2030, utilities will be required to procure half of their electricity from renewable sources. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD)’s Clean Energy Vision includes a goal to reach zero carbon emissions by 2030, the most ambitious goal of any large utility in the country.

Good Neighbors: The Coyote Creek Agrivoltaic Ranch Team is committed to continued community and stakeholder engagement during the construction and operations of the facility. Please reach out to us with any questions or comments.
