4217 Case Studies
In 2020, Hanford Elementary School District used GC 4217 to enter into a sole-source agreement with the energy services company SitelogIQ. As part of the scope of work, SitelogIQ was contracted to make the necessary electrical infrastructure upgrades which would allow the installation of ten 19.2kW EV chargers, provided by the district. The contract included a $270,000 CEC electric bus grant.
In April of 2021, Grossmont Union High School issued an RFP for a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with an energy partner, with electric bus charging and energy supply/charge management services included under the arrangement. The RFP was developed pursuant to Rule 4217 provisions. As part of the SOW, the partner firm was expected to “Create a 10-year plan to acquire chargers and developed a phased Project for transitioning to an electric bus fleet” and to “guarantee long-term cost savings through reduced energy use, reduced fuel and maintenance costs, and fixed energy cost as well as include the option of vehicle to grid capabilities.” In December of 2021, ENGIE Impact was selected to develop a 20-year strategic roadmap to fully electrify the district’s fleet
City of Woodside
In 2019, the Town of Woodside contracted Sage Renewables Inc. to evaluate the feasibility of a solar PV system and installation of EV chargers, in a contract valued at $17,380. As part of the scope of work, Sage Renewables was tasked with creating a project-specific RFP using GC 4217 to select “best value proposals,” utilizing Sage RFP templates.
