Our Programs

Telecom and Internal Networking

Our master contracts are competitively sourced and available for your review. We have taken care of all the details to save you money and make your job easier. Our contracts can be used to procure leading brands such as Avaya, Cisco, HP, Jive, Palo Alto Networks, Samsung, Aruba, Cisco, Extreme, Fortinet, Palo Alto, etc.

Solar and Energy Storage

We conducted a statewide RFP process and made all the leading solar providers compete. Our cooperating public agency worked with us closely to help create a master contract with unprecedented pricing and terms.

Natural Gas 
and Electricity

We have tremendous buying and bargaining power with suppliers. We can lower the risk by providing the best available combination of low, stable and predictable rates.

LED Lighting

We make sure you get the best pricing and installation through our proven procurement process. We invited dozens of vendors to submit pricing and terms for our published RFP and evaluated them on criteria like pricing, range of design and quality of proposed products, and more.

Energy Data Management

Let us help you make full use of your utility data to save money and be more efficient. Tracking and managing your electricity, natural gas, water, sewer and solid waste services can be headache-inducing. We make it easy with a web-based solution that turns stacks of paper into powerful tools that link invoice information to other useful data – such as prior period billing details, facility square footage, facility type, occupancy or local weather data.

Electric Vehicles 
and Site Electrification

As the world rapidly adopts EV (Electric Vehicles), California continues to lead the way in the transition to sustainable infrastructure. We can help you expedite the process of EV adoption and Site Electrification to help you meet your goals (or mandates) faster and with less risk.
