- WHAT IS CAPITALIZED COST ?
- 00:07
- Capitalized cost is defined as the present worth of a constant annual cost over an infinite analysis period
- 00:14
- 00:15
- Capitalized Cost, P = A/i
- 00:24
- It can be shown that the factor (P/A, i %, n = infinity) is equal to (1 / i ), with the interest rate i in decimal form
- 00:40
- EXAMPLE 1 :
- 00:42
- Determine the capitalized cost at 15% interest of a structure with an initial cost of $200,000 and annual operating and maintenance costs of $40,000.
- 00:58
- SOLUTION:
- 01:00
- P = $200,000 + $40,000 (P/A,15%,n = infinity) = $200,000 + $40,000 (1 / 0.15 ) P = $200,000 + $266,667 = $466,667
