Step 7: Shortening the ROI and Spending the Savings    
The seventh and last step is shortening the ROI and spending the savings. Year after year, ROI will continue to grow at a rate better than the increase in energy prices. Therefore, the ROI will start to shorten right away because of the trend of rising energy prices.  However, the best way to shorten the ROI is by reducing the capital invested.  This is done after the solution is installed by applying for government and product incentives, rebates, and tax credits. Reduction of the amount invested shortens ROI and allows greater savings sooner. The only thing left is to figure out how to spend those savings.
