IAPMO R&T Provides ENERGY STAR® Certification for Imperial’s Electric Griddles

IAPMO R&T, North America’s leading provider of third-party certification services for plumbing and mechanical products, has completed ENERGY STAR® certification for manufacturer Imperial Commercial Cooking Equipment’s line of electric griddles, the first such products to receive the energy efficiency certification through IAPMO R&T.

The certificate of listing covers five models of Imperial’s commercial electric griddles that have now earned the ENERGY STAR® label — ITG-24, ITG-36, ITG-48, ITG-60 and ITG-72. The listing certificate granted by IAPMO R&T verifies that each model meets the minimum ENERGY STAR® qualifications for cooking efficiency and maximum idle energy rates.

ENERGY STAR®-qualified commercial electric griddles must meet a minimum cooking efficiency of 70 percent. Commercial electric griddles that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label are considered to be about 10 percent more energy efficient than standard models and can save businesses 2,270 kWh annually, or an average of $230 per year on utility bills.

“Our customers look for the ENERGY STAR® label and it is an important marketing tool for us,” said Albert To’o, consultant engineer for Imperial Commerical Cooking Equipment. “I have worked with IAPMO R&T in the past with different projects because their work and technical background are very well trusted in the industry.”

Launched in 1992 as a joint program of the U.S. EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy, the voluntary ENERGY STAR® labeling program was expanded in 1995 to include residential heating and cooling equipment, and later major appliances, lighting and roof products. Users of ENERGY STAR®-qualified products saved about $18 billion on their energy bills in 2010, eliminating greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars. The program requires all ENERGY STAR® labeled products to undergo third party certification by a U.S. EPA-recognized certification body like IAPMO R&T.
