Energy Management at Purdy Manufacturing Plant

November 3, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Energy Trust of Oregon worked with Purdy Professional Painting Tools to help them get more from their energy. Purdy Professional Painting Tools, a division of Sherwin-Williams and a manufacturer of paintbrushes and other tools, was able to reduce its energy use intensity by 10 percent. Through operational efficiencies and changes in behavior, Purdy saved more than 240,000 kWh, or $16,000 in energy cost savings. Energy Trust provided nearly $11,000 in cash incentives toward the cost of the energy-saving improvements.
