Project payback is the number of years it takes to repay the installed costs.
Are the savings worth it? Investing in a greener workplace usually saves you 10 to 30% off annual utility bills.
- Changing lighting has one of the better payback plans.
- A central air conditioner 10 years old can save 20% on your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.
- Having the right heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) for a healthy and productive work place normally costs you about 40% of the electricity used in commercial buildings according to U.S. Small Business Administration.
A good HVAC contractor like PDM can help identify better solutions for your site. We can help curb extra expenses when it comes to energy conservation and equipment.
The challenge is that businesses have to fund the installation of the energy conservation measure when they are installed, but will realize the energy savings benefits in the future.
Selecting the right option for any business depends upon its financial needs, goals, project size, installation timing, acceptable loan terms and other factors. Some green financing options include: local banks and possibly utility companies.
