When Adelphi University decided to move forward with the implementation of a new co-generation central heating plant that could reduce their kilowatt usage by 41%, they were quickly faced with the decision of how to fund the project. An initial investment was required to install the equipment, and because the plant construction would take two years to complete, the university would not see any cost savings until then.
