American Dryer recently expanded the EXTREME AIR series high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryer with the new EXT series. The EXT consumes three times less power than other "green" hand dryers, using only 540 watts of electricity. The EXT is the first hand dryer to use less than $0.18 of electricity per 1,000 hand dryings. It can dry your hands 55 times for the cost of one paper towel. The reduced power consumption allows up to three EXTs to be connected to a single dedicated electrical line, reducing installation costs.
