“Energy efficiency is not only good for the environment, but it also improves the bottom line for our end users,” said Mark McClanahan, Scotsman Ice president. He estimated that the company’s Prodigy Energy Star-qualified ice machine could help customers realize an average 20% energy savings, translating to a savings of approximately $710 per year.
Scotsman has more than 50 Energy Star-rated ice machine models, and 25 of those models are also meet the maximum Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) Tier 3-rated performance criteria, which exceeds the current Energy Star standard.
