Can I save energy by unplugging my vending machines on weekends and holidays?

There’s a lot you can do to reduce power consumption on your  vending machine when it’s not in use, such as over weekends or holidays (and in turn keep your energy bills low). Unplugging a vending machine will certainly stop it consuming energy, but you need to remember to turn it on again and consider the large amounts of energy needed to refrigerate from room temperature every time. More efficiently, many machines now come with timers or occupancy sensors to turn off lights and reduce operation when the machine isn’t in use (rather than completely shut it down). For an internal machine you can also choose to keep the lights off (saving as much as 35% on energy consumption) and turn up the temperature permanently by a couple of degrees; this will have minimal effect on the product, but could save 30% in operating costs.
