It’s no secret that owning a successful restaurant is a difficult task. Besides the high level of competition in the industry, restaurant owners also have to deal with high energy costs that eat into their already-slim profit margins.

In fact, restaurants in the United States consume nearly 3 quadrillion BTUs of major fuel per year, according to the Energy Information Administration. To put it in other words, that’s three thousand trillion units of energy.

Luckily, help is available. Through the use of power monitoring equipment – such as the meters and submeters available from Electro Industries – business owners and energy managers can track their energy consumption in real time. With this information readily available, it is easy to identify areas of inefficiency and implement programs to correct them.

For the past 40 years, we have helped businesses around the world save money and improve their bottom line simply by reducing their energy waste.

This is what a typical Bill of Materials might look like for a restaurant:

Critical Load Point

  • Nexus 1500 – Advanced Power Quality Analyzer and Energy Meter

Large Loads (400+ amps)

  • Shark 200– Data-Logging Energy Submeter for Load Profiling

Small Loads (<200 amps)
