    Taco Bell Franchisee Reduces Walk-In Cooler Energy Consumption by 19%

    For the last seven years, The Madison Energy Group has been using the DENT Instruments' Time-of-Use SMARTloggers™ to prove its energy saving technology, the EnerG2, to its clients before they purchase.

    EnerG2 is a device that was developed by The Madison Energy Group and contains a non-toxic, food safe gel compound that has similar thermal properties to that of food and beverage.

    The DENT Instruments' SMARTloggers were recently used in a case study, conducted by multiple locations of a large Taco Bell franchisee, where a sizable percentage of energy savings was realized. In addition to a reduction in equipment maintenance costs, the Madison Energy Group was able quantify a 19% savings in these specific Taco Bell Walk-In Coolers and Freezers using the DENT SMARTloggers where the EnerG2 device was installed.
