Does Sacramento use PGE?
Accordingly, does Sacramento CA have power?
The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) is a community-owned electric utility serving Sacramento County and parts of Placer County.
Furthermore, is PG&E responsible for California fires? An investor-owned utility, PG&E provides power to most of California, servicing more than 16 million people. It's also been found responsible for at least 17 of the state's 21 major wildfires in 2017, not to mention last year's Camp Fire in which 87 people died, making it the deadliest fire in California history.
Similarly one may ask, do you need both SMUD and PG&E?
Yes you need both. Pg&E for gas, SMUD for electricity. SMUD is a public-owned electric nonprofit utility. One thing you will notice with your first bill is that SMUD charges considerably less than PG&E for electricity.
Will Sacramento be affected by the PG&E shut off?
The planned shutoff event, as of Tuesday afternoon's estimates by PG&E, will affect broad portions of the Sacramento Valley, the Bay Area and the North Bay. No shutoffs are expected for Sacramento County, but more than 100,000 customers could lose power in neighboring El Dorado, Placer and Yolo counties.
