Vending Services is committed to being environmentally friendly and has taken steps to reduce the University's carbon footprint. Beverage vending machines are equipped with energy efficient features such as Econo-Cool Technology that save up to 50% on energy consumption. These venders meet or exceed Energy Star requirements by utilizing new lighting, new evaporator fan/motor technology and new lower demand cooling systems. During non-peak building operating hours, machines go into standby mode, reducing the holding temperature which in turn reduces refrigeration cycles. The University also uses beverage and food vending machines with T-8 lighting, motion sensing technology, which shuts off lights when nobody is around the machine, and LED lighting, which reduces heat generated by conventional lighting as well as lowers energy consumption.
