With the continual increase in operational costs and decrease in budgets, it is more important than ever that energy projects are completed successfully and effectively. The purpose of the energy and building projects program is to ease phone calls, simplify the process, ensure maximum savings, and bring peace-of-mind to our purchasing members.

As part of the META Purchasing Cooperative, an RFQ was released to energy conservation companies. The selection process was conducted by voluntary school districts and one vendor was awarded.
