Expected value of cash flows Cost

$1,300,000 720,000 280,000

$2,300,000 2,000,000

Expected net present value $ 300,000

Alternatively, present values given in column 4 could be adjusted using the certainty equivalent or risk-adjusted discount rate method. The plant that offers the largest risk-adjusted net present value is the optimal choice.
