Step 1: What is the NPV for each option? If we assume that each project will be  replaced an infinite number  of times in  the future , we can convert each NPV to   an annuity . The projects’ EAAs can be compared to  determine which is the best project! EAA:   Simply find the annuity payment  that has the same PV (i.e. NPV), life,  and discount rate as the project. Key to EAA Solution:  Spread the NPV  over the life of the project.
