BoxDrop New England.

family-owned furniture store in Warren, RI

BoxDrop New England is a small, family-owned furniture store in Warren, RI. They are forced to operate on tight margins in order to compete with Big Box retailers. Keeping their overhead down is crucial to maintaining their competitive advantage. The owner, Kyle Sherratt, reached out to RISE Engineering for a no-cost energy assessment with the goal of evaluating and identifying potential areas of savings.


“Afer RISE explained how they work with our local utility company, National Grid, to get us the best rebates available, the decision to move forward was a no-brainer. The install was recently completed and so far I am seeing a 31% saving in my utility bill which is fantastic."
