Higher Standards for Vending Machines

Headline Legal News Posted on

Courthouse News reports that cold beverages dispensed from refrigerated vending machines will cost less to cool according to new standards proposed by the Department of Energy that will increase the electrical efficiency of new machines.

The 2.5 million such machines in use in the United States consume approximately 7.5 billion kWh per year. This equipment costs American businesses nearly $600 million annually to power. The DOE believes that number will go down as the new standards are applied to new machines. By 2042, DOE expects energy savings from the standards to save about $489 million a year.

These energy savings will result in cumulative greenhouse gas emission reductions of approximately 9.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide an amount equal to that produced by 2 million cars every year.
