Vending machines need electricity to power signage, illuminate and refrigerate products and heat up water for hot drinks. But when installing a vending machine you need to know that the energy costs won’t leave you out of pocket and that the machine is environmentally sound. The good news is that modern vending machines don’t consume anything like as much energy as they used to and inbuilt features like occupancy sensors and timers turn lights off and reduce operations (such as refrigeration compressors and fan motors) when the machine is not in use. Energy Star rated machines also use around 40% less energy so make sure your machine is certified.
