Testimonials

RHT has been a partner of 3M/Imation/ Kodak/Carestream over the years and has helped us with many successful energy conservation projects and I know that many other companies throughout the state have benefitted from its services. I have always experienced a high degree of professionalism over the years with the team from RHT.

Having RHT Energy as a Program Delivery Contractor in Avista’s service territory, has made it easier for local gas and electric customers to take advantage of the incentives available through both Avista and the ETO [Energy Trust of Oregon]. They are a model for how superior administration, knowledgeable employees and sound financial management, can make a business successful.

I am writing this letter of recommendation in support of RHT Energy which has assisted Douglas County Forest Products in numerous conservation projects at our stud mill. These include dust collection, material handling, air compression, VFD kiln applications, and our most current project: to decrease the parasitic loads at our new bio-mass boiler. We have found RHT Energy to be professional in their engineering and data collection, quick to deliver service, and eager to work with all agencies to ensure we are successful in our project.

This letter is written to commend and recommend RHT Energy (RHT) as an outstanding consulting group. Recently, RHT assisted Green Diamond Sand Products with our new project, and in doing so, we believe that they deserve this recommendation. Green Diamond worked with RHT during the pre-construction design phase of our new industrial abrasive facility in Riddle, Oregon. RHT reviewed our design for a new material separation plant and did an intensive Engineering Energy Study on four possible energy saving projects. With the energy studies, we were able to secure Energy Trust of Oregon (ETO) incentives that allowed us to move forward with projects that otherwise we would not have been able to undertake. Due to their performance obtaining ETO incentives, we independently retained RHT to generate an Energy Analysis Report to the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) for the Business Energy Tax Credit (BETC) application. The report detailed savings from electricity, natural gas, and diesel fuel for the entire new industrial abrasive facility project. As we were new to the ETO program and were a first time participator, RHT worked hard to educate us in the process and helped us to achieve the maximum incentives available in a timely manner.

Energy conservation has been a cornerstone of our engineering philosophy here at Harry and David for many years with the implementation of various energy efficiency projects, including the recent upgrade to our compressed air systems and extensive facility lighting retrofits. RHT’s detailed analysis for the lighting project provided us with several combinations of project variables which were used in our final selection process and funding request. In all of our associations, RHT has proven to be a professional and capable asset in helping us accomplish our goals and operational objectives. We highly recommend their services.

We wanted to let you know how happy we are with the RHT staff. Their ability to come through with such short lead time really impressed us here at Timber Products Co. Early on, I really had my doubts that the Energy Trust would be able to provide incentives services anything like what we were able to take advantage of through the power company. Those doubts have been stifled. These incentives are allowing Timber Products Co. to invest in projects that otherwise we would not be able to do, and moving forward with the projects gives us the ability to compete in a global market that is increasingly more and more competitive.

When RHT Energy found a billing error that saved us $4,000 per month at our Oregon facility we were impressed, but the $130,000 discovery in California made us believers!
