restaurant tips
  • Electric frying pans, woks and slow cookers are more efficient than stovetop burners.
  • Identify potential energy efficiency improvements with a walkthrough assessment or professional energy audit. Establish baseline energy usage, track changes to document the impact, target your most inefficient systems and use savings for additional capital investments. 
  • Reduce operating costs by 30–50% when you add variable controls  to your kitchen exhaust system. 
  • Reduce lighting energy use  by 15–25% when you replace overhead T12 fluorescent lamps and magnetic ballasts with premium efficient T8 fluorescent lamps and electronic ballasts.
  • Install an aerator on the kitchen faucet to reduce waterflow. 
  • Make sure oven seals fit snugly to prevent heat from escaping.
  • Save $900 per year when you replace your aging HVAC system with a properly sized high-efficiency model. 
  • Turn off electric burners several minutes before the allotted cooking time. The heating elements usually stay hot long enough to finish the cooking task.
  • Save up to 45% of electricity use when you replace old appliances with ENERGY STAR® appliances including commercial solid-door refrigerators and freezers.
