Energy Smart Tips for Restaurants

In the United States, restaurants spend an average of $3.77 per square foot on electricity and $1.57 per square foot on natural gas annually. As gas and electricity costs rise, energy efficiency becomes increasingly necessary for the restaurant industry.

Typically, 3-5% of a restaurant's total operating costs are spent on energy.

Reducing energy costs by 20% is an achievable goal and contributes to the business' profit without compromising service, quality, style, or comfort.
