Our Commitment to the Environment

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.
