#### Why SunSniffer^{®} pays for itself

Make some assumptions and you will see, SunSniffer^{®} is an investment with its own interest rate.**Even with conservative assumptions SunSniffer ^{®} still makes the plant more**

**profitable**. So it actually IS an investment itself, as you can see in the brief example calculation

below.

In this example we assume the following:

- Plant size is 2 MW

- Yield per year is around 1,800 kWh/kWp

- Feed-in remuneration is $ 4.5 Cent per kWh

- O&M costs are around $ 8 per kWp on average

- SunSniffer hardware costs for that plant would be $ 42,385.

- A very conservative assumption of yield increase made by SunSniffer^{®} would be 2%, and O&M cost reduction of 20%.

→ But even with this conservative assumption, the investment into SunSniffer^{®}

would **pay off after 6.6 years in this case** - the point when additional profit starts to sum up.

→ Assuming a lifespan of 20 years, due to SunSniffer^{®} the plant **produces more than $ 128,000 additional gain!**

**→ Return on investment of SunSniffer ^{®} in this case is 15%!**

Real ROI is much higher on SunSniffer

^{®}due to worst case assumptions here.
