Design & Construction Services

Whether you're adding an electric-vehicle charger, building your dream house or a sports arena, our Design & Construction Services team is here to help you connect to SMUD's electric system.

This site explains the connection process and details electric service requirements. You'll also find links to SMUD's Project Application website, where you can submit an application to connect to our electrical system, track the status of an existing job and make payments.


Getting started

If you're planning a new construction, upgrade or remodel project that will need more than a meter installation and connection of electric service, click the “New SMUD Construction Required” button below for more information about the application and connection process.

If you need a new service or an upgrade to existing service that won't require upgrades or additions to SMUD's existing infrastructure, click the “Meter and Service Only” button below for more information about the application and connection process.

Please Note: Each local agency has its own requirements for construction projects. We suggest that you discuss your project with the appropriate agency before submitting your project application to SMUD. Click here for more information about local agency requirements.
