DENVER, June 13, 2003 — Bayview Technology Group, makers of an energy saving device for coin operated cold beverage machines called the VendingMiser®, announced partnerships with Nevada Power Company and Sierra Pacific Power. These alliances allow the state of Nevada to reduce energy consumption and save money, while providing its customers with an incentive program.
Customers of Nevada Power and Sierra Pacific Power now qualify for a rebate of $100 towards the purchase of the VendingMiser. The rebate will be awarded to the first 700 units installed in the Las Vegas area and to the first 300 installed in the Reno area.
On average each vending machine consumes 3,500 kWh per year. The state of Nevada has an average rate of $.065/kWh, therefore one machine costs roughly $228 in electricity each year. The VendingMiser reduces the electricity costs of cold drink vending machines by an average of 46 percent. Over the course of five years, 1,000 VendingMiser’s will save the state of Nevada approximately $608,400.
“We are very pleased to participate with Nevada Power and Sierra Pacific Power in efforts to reduce electric costs and conserve energy,” said Arnold Tinter, President of Bayview Technology Group.
VendingMiser is an activity-based plug-load control for coin-operated cold drink vending machines, which reduces energy consumption without affecting the product. VendingMiser powers down a vending machine when there is no activity. Additionally, VendingMiser’s smart technology monitors the room temperature and will automatically re-power the machine to ensure a cold beverage is served at all times.
