Save money with energy-efficient commercial food service equipment

You can receive cash incentives for purchasing qualifying, energy-efficient commercial food service equipment. Upgrade your kitchen with the latest technologies in cooking and hot/cold storage equipment and save a bundle on your annual energy costs.

Bakery chefLook for the ENERGY STAR® label on the following appliances: fryers, holding cabinets, commercial refrigerator / freezers, and steam cookers.

SVP is offering rebates for installing advanced controls for commercial kitchen ventilation systems. Demand control kitchen ventilation systems vary the fan speed of your kitchen exhaust hood and make-up air systems. They use advanced sensors that vary speeds based on cooking activity. Not only do they save money on energy costs, but they also reduce noise, increase occupant comfort, and they reduce wear and maintenance costs of your kitchen ventilation equipment.

Did you know that:

  • For each ENERGY STAR-qualified electric steam cooker you purchase, you can save on average $450 per year on your utility costs
  • Commercial solid door refrigerators and freezers are up to 45 percent more efficient than standard models
  • Hot food holding cabinets with the ENERGY STAR label can provide you with up to 4,100 kWh of annual energy savings

Visit the Food Service Technology Center website to obtain a qualified equipment list and other useful information on efficient commercial kitchen best practices.
