Frequently Asked Questions

What does this Web site do?

The 2030 Districts Marketplace provides an easy way for 2030 Districts members and partners to buy technologies that assist in efficiency retrofit projects at exclusive discounts. 

Who is this Web site for?

The 2030 Districts Marketplace is for any 2030 District member or partner who wants to buy efficient products for a company, institution, or other organization. Purchasers represent commercial real estate, public housing authorities, apartment building owners and managers, schools, colleges and universities, assisted living facilities, and many other types of organizations. Suppliers sell energy- and water-efficient products and/or green building materials, some of which at exclusive discounts.

What types of products are available through this Web site?

Purchasers can use the 2030 Districts Marketplace to purchase innovative reliable products at below-market prices, such as  The platform also allows purchases to get quotes for ENERGY STAR qualified equipment and WaterSense fixtures. We plan to add more product types in the future. See more information on the Products page.

Why should I buy qualified products?

These technologies were selected through a competitive application process to vet reliability, effectiveness, and pricing so you can move forward with confidence. These products use less energy, save money, and help protect the environment. Other green products are screened for environmental characteristics, including recycled content and low-emissions. See more information on the Products page.

Why should I use this Web site?

The 2030 Districts Marketplace makes it easy access discounted pricing on effective products and to get competitive quotes for qualified products. Our customized forms guide you through the process of formulating your purchase request, so you get the product that meets your needs. When you submit a request, we’ll pass it on to participating suppliers on your behalf, saving you time and keeping your contact information private. Suppliers then provide their agreed upon discount or in some cases compete against one another for your business, saving you money.

I want to find suppliers of qualified products, but I'm not yet ready to buy. Can I still use the site?

Sure. Just be sure to note in the top portion of the purchase request form under "Type of Response Requested" that you're only looking for contact information from suppliers, not detailed information on product(s) and pricing.

Are purchase requests required to meet a minimum product quantity threshold?

Yes, for certain products that are available for competitive budding we require a minimum quantity, which is indicated on the purchase request form under "Total Order Quantity". Keep in mind that a request for a larger quantity is likely to receive more interest from suppliers and more favorable pricing.
