EPA released the final ENERGY STAR Commercial Ice Makers Version 3.0 specification on May 19, 2017. The specification will take effect on January 28, 2018. EPA would like to thank the many stakeholders who provided valuable feedback throughout the specification development process.
These new performance requirements for ACIMs offer end users up to 20% energy savings compared to standard products, depending on size and type.
In addition to updating performance requirements, this specification establishes optional connected functionality criteria for commercial ice makers. The connected criteria may offer end users new convenience and energy-saving features such as the ability to establish minimum or critical capacity of ice in the storage bin at all times.
