The food preparation technology provider Rational announced that it has joined EPA's ENERGY STAR program as an ENERGY STAR partner. Rational said in a news release that it is only one of two combination oven manufacturers that is an ENERGY STAR partner.
Compared to standard equipment, ENERGY STAR certified combination ovens on average are 30 percent more efficient, with an estimated annual savings of $250 for gas models and $700 for electric models, the release said.
"Being an ENERGY STAR partner will open up new opportunities with those customers and projects that want and require ENERGY STAR certification for their operations and for green building opportunities with LEED designations," said Rational President Markus Glueck, in the release. "Our customers and consultants want to be environmentally friendly, and now with our being an ENERGY STAR partner, they know they are or can be."
