Introduction to the Cash Flow Opportunity Calculator Spreadsheet

Last Updated: 04-22-2019

This interactive, self-guided presentation shows how to use operating budgets as a potential "source of revenue" to pay for energy efficiency projects. The Cash Flow Opportunity (CFO) Calculator is an interactive calculator that helps quantify the cost of delaying investment in upgrades by addressing three critical questions: How much new energy efficiency equipment can be purchased from the anticipated savings; should this equipment purchase be financed now, or is it better to wait and use cash from a future budget; and is money being lost by waiting for a lower interest rate? The CFO Calculator is designed so that managers who are not financial specialists can use it to make informed decisions, yet it is sophisticated enough to satisfy financial decision-makers.
