Operating Costs Chart

Purpose: The Operating Costs chart allows users to view the anticipated operating costs for each location. 

Overview: The Operating Costs chart, accessed by selecting the Operating Costs button located under the Financial Analysis column on the Charts page, displays the anticipated operating costs for each location based on the available information used in evaluation. The chart displays the estimated annual costs for each location in a stacked bar chart format which allows a user to quickly reference the total anticipated annual costs as well as the value for each cost component. Each cost component is displayed in a different color to differentiate its value as a part of the overall cost for that location. The cost component colors are consistent across each location to allow for quick comparison of categorical costs.
