The cost savings from today’s energy efficient technologies can be significant, consistent and predictable. With the addition of innovative energy financing programs, energy savings can free up cash from day one of energy efficient renovations. The savings can improve a company’s bottom line.
Through the use of a variety of energy financing programs as well as rebates and tax incentives what was once considered an expense can now be treated as an investment. Resultant savings can show up as increased cash flow.
Formerly the energy efficiency industry would suggest only incremental energy projects for a business. It was thought that the piecemeal approach would less dramatically affect cash flow. What the industry realized was that was not in the best interest of the customer. The best approach is to figure out how to save the maximum energy possible. The energy saved can then pay for the project. Incorporating unique financing options that are business friendly is often the key to generating sufficient energy savings that more than offset the entire cost of the project.
