Estimating power consumption for a slush machine depends on variable factors like: how many times is is filled up and has to re-freeze, what the ambient temperature is, whether the air intake is clear and the temperature of the slush when it is put in. Here in the ‘Estimate per day’ column we are giving you the average case scenario based on good operating conditions. Note the ‘Max per day column’, the daily cost cannot be higher than this because machines only use full power when freezing or chilling down. The calculations above are based on 25p per KWH, you would need to use your own rate to get an accurate cost. Standing charges are not included in these calculations.

The good news is selling just 1 or 2 drinks could cover that days running cost.
