The Cost of Doing Nothing
I saw this timely article today from Energy Upgrade California:
The highlights are copied below:
Oftentimes, financing early replacement of equipment, coupled with incentives now, may prove to be more cost-effective than waiting until a scheduled replacement of equipment or measures. Consider this case study — the management team compared the value of A) replacing the window and roof today, taking advantage of energy efficiency incentives, versus B) waiting six years until the scheduled replacement.
Studies indicate… upgrades not only decrease energy costs, but also decrease vacancy rates and operating costs, and increase a property’s net operating income.
