The Energy Commission - Where We Live

We call Sacramento home. As the capital of California, which is consistently among the 10 largest economies on earth, Sacramento is one of the most affordable metropolitan areas of the state. A must-see destination itself, Sacramento is near world-class cultural and recreational centers, such as San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada, the California coastline, the legendary Napa Valley wine country and the agriculture-rich Delta section of the state.

Unlike other metro regions, Sacramento still offers elbow room. The area offers a variety of activities - biking, fishing, boating, art, theater and a small-town feel. Camping, skiing and other resort activities are a two-hour drive in any direction.

As in the gold rush days, Sacramento is a transportation hub. Today, an international airport, two major interstate freeways, passenger rail lines and a much-improved commuter bus and light rail system for city and suburban travel serve the area.

Sacramento is home to leading institutions of higher education, including California State University, Sacramento and the world-renowned University of California, Davis. There are five community colleges, several private institutions of higher education and more than 160 vocational and training programs.

Our Careers site gives you the steps to begin employment with a vital organization in a city widely regarded as the state's center of decision-making.
