A brief description of the technology used:

The vending machines in Wallach, Hartley, and John Jay use the Vending Miser energy management system. The energy savings result in a reduction of both operation costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The vending machines now use 46% less energy than before and are comparable in daily energy performance to new Energy Star qualified machines.
