Save money by adding energy efficiency to your menu.
If your business or institution has a commercial kitchen, energy efficiency can help you save energy and money. Commercial kitchens consume more energy per square foot than many other types of businesses. Some energy efficiency improvements can be made with little or no investment. Other improvements require a larger upfront investment but can pay for themselves quickly. Read our “Four easy steps to start saving money in your commercial kitchen” to learn more.
Simple changes to your kitchen, such as pushing cooking line appliances as close to the hood as possible, fixing water leaks, and setting water heaters to proper temperatures can save energy with little investment. In addition to lowering energy costs, efficiency improvements can also enhance the comfort, appearance, and ambience of your restaurant, cafeteria, or kitchen for your guests and staff.
