Save an average 46% on energy costs
VendingMiser® uses a Passive Infrared Sensor to:

- Ensure the product stays cold
The City of Houston purchased 285 VendingMisers for beverage vending machines in City-owned and operated facilities and parks. The devices, which reduce energy consumption by powering down the machine when the surrounding area is vacant, will be installed on the beverage vending machines in the coming weeks. Together these energy saving devices will reduce the City’s vending machine electricity consumption by forty to fifty percent. This represents an annual savings of $34,712 or $98 per machine.
Pinellas County School District, in Florida, bought VendingMisers® for 800 of the schools cold drink vending machines. Testing on 5 different machines yielded savings of 32 – 55%. The school district expects to save over $660,000 in electricity costs in a five-year period.
