(2) Bidders must demonstrate that the proposed project will be valuable to alternative fuel vehicle drivers and will address a gap in the state's low carbon transportation infrastructure;
(3) Projects must be expected to be profitable and sustainable over time for the owner-operator and/or the private sector partner, inclusive of indirect value gained;
(4) Bidders must specify how the project captures the indirect value of station deployment to the private sector partner;
(5) Bidders and their private sector partners must agree to operate and maintain the stations for at least five years and must meet the requirements in the department's solicitation materials for equipment offerings, interoperability standards, station operations and uptime, public access, payment options, customer service, signage, and period of performance; and
(6) Bidders and their private sector partners can reinvest any proceeds from ongoing operations to upgrade equipment and expand the site to accommodate higher utilization rates in the future.
