Success Story

Alpenrose Dairy, Portland

Estimated annual savings: $16,000

Alpenrose Dairy, founded in Southwest Portland in 1916, has manufactured a range of quality dairy products for more than 100 years. Most recently, the company stepped up as the inaugural customer for the new direct install pipe insulation offer from Energy Trust of Oregon.

Alpenrose chose J&J Mechanical Insulation, one of Energy Trust’s approved trade allies to complete the work. With no out-of-pocket costs for Alpenrose, a vetted trade ally to do the work, and energy savings forthcoming, they were sold on the offer’s value. With the new pipe insulation installed, Alpenrose is expecting to save an estimated $16,000 annually in energy costs.

As the first to take advantage of Energy Trust’s direct install pipe insulation offer, Alpenrose has observed no complications. “It’s been really smooth and easy; the coordination has been great,” Ryan said. “As a regional manager at different facilities, I have a lot to oversee; this upgrade was one of the easier things I’ve had to handle. That says a lot right now.”
