Does it take a lot of energy to make ice for our drinks?

    Ice makers vary in their energy efficiency. They use anywhere from 4 – 20 kWh per 100 pounds of ice produced. The energy used in the freezers in homes to produce ice is less in retrospect because those freezers would be working anyway to freeze other food items in the freezer. There is a small amount of extra energy used, however, to freeze ice cubes in our freezer. In general, commercial ice makers are very energy hungry machines. There are, however, some brands on the market that are proving to be more energy efficient.
