  • APS District-Wide Walk-In Cooler/Freezer Retrofit RFP
    This is the RFP that Aurora Public Schools (APS) recently (2015) used to procure retrofits throughout all of the district's walk-in coolers/freezers including installation of energy efficient EC motors, evaporator and door heater controls. This very successful project awarded to PowerDown was not only effective for conserving energy and earning some sizable Xcel rebates, it was also tremendously useful for identifying deteriorating equipment conditions. An editable RFP and pricing data is available upon request and authorization from PowerDown. Contact Craig Wright at cawright@aps.k12.co.us for further details.
  • APS District Waste, Recycling and Composting RFP
    This is the RFP that Aurora Public Schools (APS) recently (2015) used to request waste, recycling and potential composting services from a single supplier that had the ability to measure approximate container weights and send such monthly waste data for each site electronically to APS. We have intentions of leveraging this data on the APS natural resources dashboard. Alpine Waste and Recycling was the winning bidder. An editable RFP and pricing data is available upon request and authorization from Alpine Waste. Contact Craig Wright at cawright@aps.k12.co.us for further details.
