Seaman Paper's Energy Conservation

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description MA OTA and the MA Toxics Use Reduction Institute recruited Seaman Paper Company, Otter River, to serve as a "demonstration site" to share its innovative energy conservation strategies and systems with Massachusetts businesses. A leader in resource conservation, the privately-owned paper company has implemented an energy consumption and fuel substitution policy that reduced electricity use by 2.6 million kilowatt hours per year and oil use by nearly 1.7 million gallons yearly. "Our demo site program," explained MA OTA Director Rich Bizzozero, "recruits early adopters and leaders in toxics and resource conservation to open their doors to other companies. We have found that businesses are more apt to adopt a technology or strategy if one of their peers has already adopted it and dealt with the potential regulatory issues." The two days of tours attracted more than 50 companies and the interest of state and local legislators.
