Reser’s Fine Foods
Reser’s Fine Foods is a major food production and distribution facility. R&W was contracted by Energy Trust of Oregon’s Existing Building Program, and worked closely with Key Mechanical, to provide a full energy and cost analysis of various energy upgrades.
These upgrades were proposed by Key Mechanical and aimed at improving the energy efficiency of multiple low temperature and medium temperature food storage rooms. Some of the measures analyzed included intelligent defrost, variable speed drives on compressors, condenser and evaporator fan motors and heat recovery from the cold storage to preheat domestic hot water. Reser’s implemented many of the upgrades identified and R&W used the energy analysis to secure Energy Trust of Oregon incentive money and State of Oregon tax credits for Reser’s.
