Commercial Foodservice Equipment

Why Buy High-Efficiency Equipment?

Whether you are a large-scale catering operation, a hospital, a school or a small restaurant, operating a commercial kitchen has some unique challenges—but saving energy doesn’t have to be one of them.

Major cooking appliances account for almost 35% of the average restaurant’s energy expenditures. High-efficiency equipment can decrease these energy costs by as much as 75%. Investing in high-efficiency commercial food equipment can significantly reduce long-term energy costs and improve production.

Incentives of up to $3,000 on qualifying equipment are available.

NHSaves® utility partners Eversource, Liberty, New Hampshire Electric Cooperative and Unitil offer a point-of-sale rebate for electric and natural gas commercial kitchen equipment through participating distributors. This is a simplified program with no application or paperwork to complete, and you are able to receive an instant rebate on your qualifying high-efficiency equipment.
