BACKGROUND

In 2012, Sage was selected by the District to assess the operational and financial performance of existing solar PV systems installed at three high schools and one middle school. In 2015, the District engaged Sage for the second phase of its energy project - 3.3 MW of solar PV at 16 middle and elementary schools, financed by Clean Renewable Energy Bonds (CREBs). Sage developed conceptual designs for each site to meet District preferences and performance goals. Working closely with financial advisors to the District, Sage performed detailed modeling in support of the CREBs Bond applications and issuance. Sage subsequently managed the competitive procurement process for the PV systems and has assisted with contract negotiations. Currently, Sage is providing design review and construction support for the project, set to be operational by the end 2016.
