Helpful tips

  • Ask your vending machine operator for ENERGY STAR certified products. Typically, the suppliers of beverage vending machine are not responsible for the energy costs, so there is otherwise little incentive to supply you with energy-efficient machines.
  • If your beverage contract will soon expire, request ENERGY STAR certified machines in your next request for proposals.
  • If you are currently in the middle of a vending contract, talk to your operator about either converting your current fleet of vending machines to more efficient ENERGY STAR certified models or upgrading your existing machines to ENERGY STAR levels.
