Willdan Group announced that it has been selected by the City of Dublin, California, to implement citywide energy efficiency, infrastructure, resiliency and smart-city upgrades. Through this comprehensive $21.2 million contract, Willdan will perform project engineering, development, construction, commissioning and savings measurement and verification at over 20 sites across the city, including the deployment of distributed energy resources at 10 sites.

“Willdan and this contract provide the turnkey expertise we needed to help our city meet immediate and long-term needs while supporting the energy efficiency, infrastructure and decarbonization goals outlined in our Climate Action Plan,” said Laurie Sucgang, Dublin City Engineer and Assistant Public Works Director.

The projects are estimated to complete construction within the next 18 to 24 months, and Willdan will support three years of operations and maintenance once the projects are in service. Ten sites will receive additional solar capacity, totaling 1.4 MWDC, and four of the sites will be paired with battery storage to support power resiliency during extreme weather events or heavy demands on the local power grid. Two locations will receive an additional 22 electric vehicle chargers to serve public-use and police fleet vehicles.

Willdan improved the financial attractiveness of the scope of work through a Willdan-managed utility program — the PG&E Government and K-12 Schools Program — which identified specific, high-efficiency equipment recommendations and found financial incentives to help offset project costs.
