Where is most energy lost during transportation?

The transmission over long distances creates power losses. The major part of the energy losses comes from Joule effect in transformers and power lines. The energy is lost as heat in the conductors. The overall losses between the power plant and consumers is then in the range between 8 and 15%.

Do you need both SMUD and PGE?

If you have both, this means that SMUD provides your electricity. We can’t connect to them, unfortunately, because they don’t have smart meters! Since PGE only provides your gas, you cannot connect it.

What are the major sources of energy?

Primary energy sources take many forms, including nuclear energy, fossil energy — like oil, coal and natural gas — and renewable sources like wind, solar, geothermal and hydropower.
