Renewable Energy Saves Fortune 100 Companies $1.1B Annually

BrianSoCal So... how much did they spend to get this savings? (116 comments)

So if I spend 80k on a new car to save 1k a year in energy costs, is this a win too? Is this a similar thing? I don't see the numbers on capital expenditure to achieve these savings. Usually when I see something like that ommitted, its to intentionaly hide something and to push some agenda or propaganda.
