Our firm represents public entities in many aspects of energy procurement and energy efficiency, including utilization of recent “Proposition 39” funds, drafting requests for proposals for energy efficiency contracts, including solar panel installations, HVAC and lighting systems, thermal heating systems, and then drafting and negotiating agreements for those projects.
On solar contracts and similar energy matters, our expertise in construction, property and general business procurement are all required to properly serve our clients. Most contracts procured through the energy efficiency statute (Government Code section 4217.10 et seq.) are, at their core, design-build contracts. It is imperative that the procurement documents and contracts for these matters are drafted by attorneys with strong construction experience. Our firm's bedrock construction practice is instrumental to providing responsible legal services to its clients in these matters.
