McDonald’s To Rollout Energy Efficient Systems
Engenuity Systems Inc. is now supplying McDonald’s with equipment to help the fast-food giant cut energy costs and increase efficiency in its restaurants worldwide, the Arizona Republic reports.
With the help of Engenuity and a few others, McDonald’s is expected to cut its annual energy costs of $1.5 billion by about 14 percent.
McDonald’s will use features such as lighting controls to shut off lights and heating and air conditioning equipment that monitors temperatures.
McDonald’s is planning to rollout the systems worldwide this year. Engenuity installed equipment in a McDonald’s store in Illinois as a pilot last year.
