Champaign, IL (PRWEB) December 12, 2007
Serv-U, a restaurant equipment and bar equipment distributor has become an Energy Star "e-tail" partner. ServU-Online.com contains the Internet's largest database of energy efficiency incentives for restaurants, including over 700 offers from around the country. Efficiency information, news articles, case studies, and videos make this web page a practical resource for professionals in all aspects of the food service industry. Serv-U's energy efficiency page can be found at http://www.servu-online.com/energy-efficient-incentives.asp.
According to Energy Star, restaurants use about 2.5 times more energy per square foot than the average commercial building. With a slowing national economy and rising energy costs, restaurateurs everywhere are looking for ways to save money and draw in more customers. Serv-U's assistance with energy efficiency does both; it can lower utility bills and help market an eatery to eco-conscious consumers.
A higher initial price tag deters some restaurants from investing in energy efficiency, but an efficient commercial fryer, for example, usually pays for itself within 2 ½ years. Finding incentives to help pay for an efficiency project can be difficult; in fact, companies created to locate incentives for other businesses have sprung up across the Internet. Serv-U's online list of incentives range from rebates for the installation of LED exit signs to low flow toilets to Energy Star deep fryers, and all of the information is free. The web site also includes tips for increasing efficiency without a capital investment.
Serv-U is a national food service distributor based in Champaign, Illinois. It was founded 13 years ago and continues a tradition of excellent customer service, prices, and product selection. Serv-U publishes a 300 page catalog twice annually and lists products and informational resources on its website, http://www.servu-online.com.
