Rebuilt Vending Machines can now earn the ENERGY STAR
The ENERGY STAR label for refrigerated vending machines is now available to the thousands of vending machines rebuilt and re-installed each year. More than 3 million refrigerated beverage vending machines are installed and operating within the U.S. These machines typically run 24 hours a day and collectively consume more than 10 billion kWh/year. The addition of rebuilt machines to the ENERGY STAR refrigerated beverage vending machine specification is projected to save end users more than $2 million the first year. Over the next five years, the specification will save almost $40 million and avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the emissions of more than 50,000 cars.
