Commercial Kitchen Electrical Usage
 
How much kilowattage does a fully equipped commercial kitchen need for use over a 24 hour period???

This all depends on the size of the kitchen and all the appliances being used in the kitchen.

There is no such thing as a standard commercial kitchen. They are all designed for a specific restaurant, in a specific space, with specific equipment. Some use very little power (all gas), others use huge amounts (fryers and induction cooktops).

I should think McDonalds would use quite a bit as everything seems to be electric - heavy duty cords hanging all over the place! Just all the "beeping" going on there probably uses quite a bit in itself! :)

But many regular restaurants use gas ranges, so might not be as much electric use.

Here it says a McDonalds uses 16,000–28,000 KWh per month...

Sounds like a homework question to me.

McDonalds tends to be very electric-heavy in the kitchen since they have mostly custom-designed appliances that use electric heating. Electrical subcontractors have told me that a typical standalone McDonalds restaurant has a 1200A 208V 3-phase service or larger. That's over 400,000 watts of service capacity.
