BACKGROUND

Sage was brought into the project by the District’s legal team to review a proposed PPA contract and advise the District as to whether the vendor’s pricing and savings claims were valid. Sage provided review and comments on the PPA contract terms, and conducted detailed modeling of the vendor’s systems and financing. Sage also took pressure off the District by slowing down the decision process, working with the vendor to meet CSI deadlines before finalizing the contract. Based on Sage’s modeling and vendor negotiations, the proposed total system size was reduced from 8.7 MW to 6.1 MW, however the lifetime savings to the District were increased by $5.4M. The final contract also included a side agreement for the District to share in revenue generated by sale of RECs. Sage also provided analysis and guidance about Direct Access energy contracts that the District was considering.
