Lodging and Foodservice Equipment

Hotel and restaurant operations depend on energy-intensive equipment—and energy expenses can be quite inhospitable. Energy Trust offers cash incentives for investing in energy-efficient equipment, including high-efficiency motion sensor nightlights, packaged terminal heat pumps, high-efficiency gas fryers, gas convection ovens, vent hoods, ice machines and more. Want to take a bite out of energy costs? Bring us in.

For a limited time, get bonus incentives up to $900 on select gas foodservice equipment.
