Projected Savings in energy costs shows a system payback of circa 5 years. This does not take into account the savings made by reduced maintenance costs due to the installation of new plant. It also does not take into account the potential future increase in savings caused by a rise in inflation, the need to replace old plant or the cost of energy.
