Restaurants consume 1/3 of all electricity in the retail sector. Dining out accounts for over half of our food budget. With issues of climate change, ocean pollution, and sustainable food at the forefront of this year’s headlines, we take this opportunity to highlight a significant way that restaurants can improve their environmental impact.
Restaurants are major consumers of hot water. Changing over to an energy-efficient water heater is a major step that every restaurant in the United States can and should do to save energy and money. The Green Restaurant Association is proud to name the following Bradford White heaters as Certified Green Products:
EF60T (125, 150, 199) E (N, X) (A), EF100T (300, 399) E (N, X) (A)

“The restaurant industry has an enormous impact on our environment. We applaud Bradford White for producing these Certified Green Product water heaters that save money, conserve energy, and lower restaurants’ environmental impact,” says Michael Oshman, CEO and Founder of the Green Restaurant Association.
