Deadline: Letter of Interest: April 23, 2021
The RFQ intends to solicit proposals from Suppliers to provide Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) vehicle charging for the PG&E Fast Charge Program.
PG&E is in the process of identifying companies that can provide EVSE package(s) for PG&E’s EV Fast Charge Program. The EVSE Package(s) will be inclusive of EVSE hardware, software, and network services. The package will not include installation services.
In May 2018, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved $22.4 million for PG&E to install makeready infrastructure that supports DCFC vehicle charging. Over the next five years, PG&E will install infrastructure at approximately 50 sites, supporting the installation of more than 200 charging stations.
PG&E will work with a group of approved charging station vendors to partner on site installations. As vendors are approved for the program, their contact information will be listed on a program website. Interested PG&E customers can contact approved vendors directly to determine the suitability of their site for Fast Charging stations. Vendors may also approach prospective site hosts to assess fit with the technology and program. It will be the EVSE vendor’s responsibility to submit the program application on behalf of the customer and site.
Fast Charge sites must be publicly accessible, and all chargers must use either CHAdeMo and/or CCS charging connector standards, with at least one of each connector per site to maximize usefulness to drivers, and be capable of charging at power levels of 50 kilowatts (kW) or greater.
