This paper provides an engineering economic analysis for an alternate energy startup company called Green Corp. The goal is to identify the breakeven year when the company can stop external financing and be completely self-sustained, with internal financing. A three-phase approach is taken to implement the project, the phases are Data collection, Analysis and Implications. The analysis is done for 5 different sizes of the product in three different areas, with different utility rates. The economic analysis results showed that utility rate impacted the breakeven year, also found that interest rate did not impact the breakeven year.
