Vending Machines

Refrigerated vending machines operate 24 hours per day, seven days a week. In addition to consuming 2,500 to 4,400 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy per year, they add to cooling loads in the spaces they occupy. At an average electricity cost of $0.12/kWh, operating costs can range from $300 to over $500 per year.

New, efficient vending machines are available that can greatly reduce operating costs. Additionally, timers and occupancy sensors can produce big savings because they allow the machines to turn on only when a customer is present or when the compressor must run to maintain the product at the desired temperature.
