Additional Restaurant Benefits

Ideal For 3-5 Deep FryersWe've sized the Vegawatt unit to maximize the return on investment for typical retail foodservice locations. If you have 3-5 deep fryers, this system is ideal for your location.
We understand that food service operations are all about cash-flow. With a 3rd party lease, a Vegawatt cogeneration system can produce a financial savings for your location after the first month, depending upon your local utility costs. A 5-year lease - including all routine maintenance and 2-year parts warranty - is only $435 per month. Or utilize your existing line of credit and not have to fill out additional paperwork.
The most economical way to own a Vegawatt cogeneration system is a direct purchase. If your food service operation generates 30 to 120 Gallons of waste vegetable oil per week, a Vegawatt cogeneration system can realize a simple payback in as few as 2 years.
