2 Practical Items If you can't hear me, please type a message in the Chat window located on the right-hand side of your screen. Please type any questions you have during the presentation into the Chat window located on the right-side of your computer screen.

3 Quiz What do you already know about energy efficiency for commercial kitchens? 1. True or False? Most Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Hoods run continuously even when cooking is not taking place? 2. How many Green Nozzle pre-rinse spray valves have been given away free to Ameren Customers? 3. Are T12 4-foot fluorescent lamps currently being manufactured in the United States?

4 Presentation Overview Today s ENERGY STAR Topics Kitchen Equipment Upgrades Water Heaters Refrigeration Equipment Lighting Upgrades ActOnEnergy Online Store Big Bonus for Small Business ActOnEnergy Incentives

5 Best Practices: Commercial Kitchen Commercial Kitchens are among the biggest energy consumers per square foot of all commercial buildings In a typical food service facility the food preparation, water heating, and refrigeration combined, can account for nearly 60% of the facilities total energy usage Kitchen ventilation systems often represent up to 75% of the HVAC load High energy usage also means that Commercial Kitchens have high potential for energy savings

6 Food Steamer ENERGY STAR qualified electric steam cookers can save businesses 4,930 kwh annually and gas models can save 33,000 btu annually Boilerless steamers also reduce water use by up to 90% 3 gallons per hour versus 40 gallons per hour for standard (boiler-based) steamers $510/year savings on utility bills (Electric bill and Water bill) The ActOnEnergy program provides Incentives from $300 to $1200 (depending on type and size)

7 Fryers and Griddles Large Vat Commercial Gas Fryers can be as much as 35% more energy efficient than standard fryers ENERGY STAR qualified fryers offer shorter cooking times, while increasing production rates ENERGY STAR qualified commercial griddles tend to be about 10% more energy efficient than standard models

8 Hot Food Holding Cabinet Hot Food Holding Cabinets that have earned the ENERGY STAR label are 60% more energy-efficient than standard models. Models that meet this requirement incorporate better insulation, reduce heat loss, and may also offer additional energy saving devices such as magnetic door gaskets, autodoor closures, or Dutch doors. The ActOnEnergy program provides Incentives from $200 to $500 (depending on size)

9 Dishwasher Commercial dishwashers often account for more than 2/3 of the overall water use in a commercial kitchen A typical dishwasher uses 4 GPR (Gallons Per Rack) ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers are on average 25% more energy-efficient and 25% more water-efficient Saves $200 on water bill and 52,000 gallons annually $850/year savings on energy bills

10 Green Nozzle Program Low-Flow Pre-Rinse Spray Valve Uses 75% less hot water than traditional spray nozzles while maintaining the same water pressure for quality cleaning Free to Ameren Illinois Gas Customers (Retail Value $100) Natural Gas savings approximately $500/year

11 Demand Control Hood Ventilation The average food service kitchen exchanges inside air for fresh outside air at least 20 times an hour. Roughly 25% of a food service operation s energy cost goes to conditioning the air brought in during these air exchanges. Most Kitchen Exhaust Systems run at full speed all day, but a properly designed Demand Control Ventilation System can vary the speed of the fans when it senses that cooking is not taking place.

12 Water Heaters Water heaters in commercial facilities account for about 11% of the total energy load on average Gas Fired Condensing Tanked Water Heaters are very energy efficient. Their design utilizes the hot flue gases to help heat the water in the tank This design also helps the tank recover quicker and therefore maintain a supply of hot water The ActOnEnergy Program offers incentives on Tanked Gas Water Heaters only (not Electric)

13 Water Heaters Tankless Water Heaters provide hot water on demand Tankless Units have a longer life expectancy than standard tanked models These units are more efficient because they do not need to constantly maintain the temperature of a large tank of water The ActOnEnergy program provides Incentives from $150 to $300 (depending on size and type standard gas or electric tankless)

14 Solid or Glass Door Freezers Newer models use components such as EC Motors and highefficiency compressors to help make them more energy efficient Routinely check your door closers and door seals to make sure they are in good shape Choosing electronic controls with a new freezer can also help with features like open-door alarms and temperature monitoring Energy Star rated Freezers can be 35% more energy efficient than standard models

15 Refrigeration Equipment EC Motor for refrigerators and freezers Uses less energy than older motors Brushless motor does not generate heat Refrigeration unit doesn t have to work as hard to cool equipment Energy savings typically pays for project between 12 and 24 months (without incentive) Incentive of $25 for walk-in/reach-in cooler and $35 for walk-in/reach-in freezer

16 Guest Room Energy Management (GREM) The ActOnEnergy cash incentives for GREM controls: Electric heat package terminal air conditioners (PTAC) = $120 Electric package terminal heat pumps (PTHP); incentive = $50 GREM systems can save you up to $120 per room EVERY YEAR!

17 Real Results: GREM Installation The Fairfield Inn & Suites in East Peoria installed a GREM in each of their 89 guest rooms Received over $5300 in cash incentives from ActOnEnergy Save around $10,000 in electric costs EVERY YEAR

18 Other Specialty Equipment Measures Strip curtains on Walk-in Coolers/Freezers $30/Cooler and $200/Freezer Automatic door closers $30 to $100 per closer High Volume Low Speed Fans (20-24 ft. dia.) $1000/fan

19 More Energy Savings Clean and Maintain Kitchen Equipment Virtually all your appliances will perform better when they are clean. This can also extend the life of the equipment. Fix any water leaks (especially hot water leaks) Turn off Food Preparation Equipment when not being used Set Refrigeration Equipment at the recommended temperatures Use Occupancy Sensors in rooms with Intermittent Use Storage Rooms, Restrooms, and Banquet Rooms Educate Staff about Energy Saving Goals

20 Best Practices: Lighting Numerous opportunities in your facility High-performance or low-wattage lamps in dining areas, and refrigeration and freezer cases T8 or T5 LED Switching from 4 lamp T12 with magnetic ballast to highperformance/low-wattage lamps will save about 33% in energy cost Current program incentive amount is $0.25/Watt reduced

21 Do You Have T12 Lighting? Look at the end of the fluorescent tube T12s have a diameter of 1 1/2 inch T8s have a diameter of 1 inch T5s have a diameter of 5/8 inch

22 T12 Lighting Phase-Out 2007 Energy Independence & Securitization Act Increased the standards for T12 lighting Most current T12 lamps will be obsolete T8 lamps have become the new standard for businesses Ballast T8 lamp

23 Best Practices: Lighting LED exit signs Older exit signs typically use $35 per year per sign LED exit signs use $3 per year per sign Typically cost $35 to purchase Incentive of $20 per exit sign
