Description / Abstract:

The LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M rating system contains clearly defined performance targets, yet, as the project profiles illustrate, the path to implementation can be flexible. Owners can develop a financing package using the cost savings from system upgrades, along with a host of other options, including rebates, grants, revolving loan funds, tax credits/incentives, and equipment lease agreements.

The paid-from-savings project illustrated in the chart below has been simplified to help demonstrate how project measures are bundled to reach a desired ROI and simple pay-back period. Most projects will have a more complex financial analysis that encompasses the costs and potential savings from all credits pursued for LEED certification, including any recurring operating costs associated with efforts to ensure recertification.
