New Burger King Restaurant Goes Green
A fast food eatery uses clean, renewable energy to run its operations.
A new Burger King restaurant in Germany is powered by wind and solar power which is expected to slash the restaurant's energy bill by almost half. Over 720 photovoltaic modules and a wind turbine at the restaurant supply a third of its total electricity.
The restaurant has an interior heat-recovery ventilation system which saves energy that would be consumed for heating and cooling and LEDs in the interior and exterior which use considerably less energy than standard bulbs. The restaurant is also equipped with a solar-powered electric vehicle charging station for hybrid cars and a rainwater reclamation system for landscape irrigation.
