Request for Proposals - Appliance Recycling Program

Focus on Energy seeks proposals to serve residential customers participating in Focus on Energy’s Appliance Recycling Program. The Appliance Recycling Program reduces energy consumption by providing an environmentally responsible recycling process that permanently removes operable, secondary refrigerators and stand-alone freezers.  Many refrigerators and freezers are replaced while still functioning and end up as back-up appliances in basements and garages, or the units are sold or donated, ending up on a secondary appliance market. Focus on Energy’s Appliance Recycling Program targets these “secondary” refrigerators and freezers to reduce energy consumption, keep appliances from entering secondary markets, and to properly dispose of and recycle appliances in an environmentally responsible manner.

Request for Proposals – New Homes Baseline and Market Characterization Study

Focus on Energy seeks proposals for conducting a New Homes program baseline study to measure technology saturation, penetration and operational practices in Wisconsin, and use those findings to help develop attribution factors to Focus on Energy programs and assist the Focus on Energy Program Administrator and Implementers with targeting appropriate technologies and market niches.  The proposal should also include a market characterization study that provides adequate market intelligence and recommendations from which Focus on Energy can determine the future direction of the New Homes program.
