Energy Star expands commercial ice maker, dishwasher programs

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it has revised its Energy Star® product specifications for commercial ice makers and dishwashers.

Under the newly revised specifications, manufacturers can now certify continuous-type ice makers, such as flake and nugget machines, and flight-type conveyor dish machines. The revisions took effect Feb. 1.

“When restaurateurs use Energy Star-certified equipment, they not only reduce their carbon footprint, but also some of their utility costs, including energy, water and heating,” EPA program manager Una Song said. “This adds up to overall savings, plus it’s good for the environment.”

Song added that the agency also plans to roll out new specifications this year for combination ovens as well.
