Applicability

Applicable to Office and Healthcare buildings

Answer

Select all applicable:

    • Yes — lighting is on timers, scheduled or individually controlled
    • Yes — spaces are zone controlled
    • No

Description

Reduction of lighting energy consumption can reduce electricity consumption and costs, lower impact on the electrical grid, assist with ensuring that there is sufficient capacity for building electrification or EV charging, and reduce carbon emissions associated with electricity, particularly where the electrical grid has a high emission factor.

Optimization can be achieved through efficient fixtures and enhanced controls while also maintaining occupant safety.

Requirements

    1. Mark up a floor plan or take photos to indicate extent of lighting controls installed throughout the building

Documentation

    • Sample of floor plans, photos or BAS screenshots of zoned controls installation
