A rural utility company provides standby power to pumping stations using diesel-powered generators. An alternative has arisen whereby the utility could use a combination of wind and solar power to run its generators, but it will be a few years before the alternative energy systems are available.

At an interest rate of 8% per year, what is the equivalent annual worth (years 1-8) of the projected savings?
