Willdan Selected by City of Dublin for $21.2 Million Distributed Energy Resource and Design-Build Contract
“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
The projects are estimated to complete construction within the next 18–24 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 MW-DC capacity, 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.
