City Issues RFP Seeking Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Partners



Peachtree Corners to expand EVSE service to businesses, visitors and residents. The city of Peachtree Corners, Georgia, yesterday announced a new Request for Proposal (RFP) as it seeks partners that can provide industry leading electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and network services to businesses (fleets, employees, visitors, and shoppers), multi-unit dwelling (MUD), property owners, and single family residences.

This RFP supports Peachtree Corners’ goal of increasing EV ownership and use within the city by providing residents and businesses with vetted EV charging solutions. Respondents will submit offers designed to provide the EV owners and operators in the city with charging solutions that are easy to purchase as well as install and feature a number of technology options while remaining competitively priced. Special promotional offers and exclusive price points will promote participation by businesses and individuals throughout the city.

“Peachtree Corners is striving to improve the community’s energy and transportation sustainability,” said City Manager Brian Johnson. “To this effort, we are working to increase the availability of electric vehicle charging stations within the community for office workspace, retail, hotel, institutional, industrial and multi-family property.”

Located in suburban metro Atlanta, Peachtree Corners is a vibrant, growing city of over 45,000
residents with committed leadership that focuses on comprehensive planning and purposeful
development. The city is home to international companies, U.S.-based corporations, and
numerous small businesses with a significant number of office buildings headquartered within
its 500-acre Technology Park. The city’s newly constructed Town Center, along with the
adjoining two-acre Town Green, offers its residents, work force and visitors a wide array of
events, activities, entertainment, dining and shopping options.

Peachtree Corners is also home to a smart city and intelligent mobility living laboratory called
Curiosity Lab, comprised of a technology incubator with 5G capabilities, a three-mile
autonomous vehicle test track, and facilities for permanent and temporary technology
development. This city-owned infrastructure offers use of facilities at no charge, as well as
complete confidentiality and no-equity requirements.

Peachtree Corners management will compile a comprehensive charging solution suite to enable accelerated selection and deployment of EV charging where people, live, work and play.

Please use this link to review the RFP in full. For companies who wish to reply to the RFP, proposals must be received at EVCharging@Peachtreecornersga.gov by 11:00 a.m. ET on Nov. 20, 2020 to be considered.
