Terry Schurter, vice president of NERC solutions at SigmaFlow said, "We wanted to provide a simple but comprehensive report showing the savings in hours and dollars related to automating all the NERC CIP compliance tasks along with an estimated break-even time
When gas prices rise, a shorter break-even time
will occur, while after gas prices decline, the break-even time
But if that car is driven 35,000 miles a year--such as a taxi or a car used in long commutes--that break-even time
shrinks to 5.
He added: "They are about three times the price of standard economy lamps, but the break-even time
is about a year, as they only use 3 watts and produce no heat".
This study used a break-even time
analysis which determines when the introduction of a new product or service will generate enough revenue to recover the upfront expenses generated by the new product or service.
For instance, Hewlett-Packard uses break-even time
to measure project performance.
to us the time that it takes for the revenue to equal the R&D investment.
The combined cost savings of the LETG reduce the break-even time
by the factor of 2-2.
