Electric School Bus Fleet Energy Usage Profile Study RFP 

 

Romulus Central School 

5705 Route 96 

Romulus, NY 14541 

The Romulus CSD is requesting proposals to provide an electrical energy study to determine the demands to design vehicle charging stations for a fleet of up to 10 electric buses. Submissions must be received in the district office at the above address by 10/15/22. Please make all proposals to the attention of Martin Rotz, Superintendent.

Scope of Work 

One of the first steps to adding electric buses to a fleet is exploring the energy usage cycle for each route mission. Each route mission consumes electrical energy that is stored in the vehicle’s battery pack to complete. Electrical energy must be added to the battery pack from the depot’s electrical charging system. Determining how much energy must be added to each battery pack and when is a prerequisite to designing the depot’s complete charging system. The aggregate amount of energy that needs to be added to all battery packs and when is used to determine electrical energy delivery needs to the facility property. 

The work product(s) contained within this scope of work will serve as a baseline design for the fleet energy usage cycle as a whole. These designs can be used to determine specific vehicle products, hardware and/or software products that can be used at the facility, facility electrical system upgrades, and utility upgrades. 

  Deliverables and Timelines

I. Project Kickoff Meeting – A project kickoff meeting with direct client stakeholders is helpful due to the technical nature of these projects. During this meeting, the provider will review materials that must be supplied by the client to begin creating the Fleet Energy Usage Profile Report.  

Timeline – To be completed within 1 week of beginning of this agreement. 

II. Fleet Energy Usage Profile Report – The fleet energy usage profile report will serve as the main work product and deliverable for this agreement. The report will contain the following information:
