2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards - Nonresidential Lighting Alterations
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Document Description
The proposed project is an update to the Building Energy Efficiency Standards in Title 24, Part 6, and specifically the provisions related to nonresidential lighting alterations (i.e., alterations of existing lighting in nonresidential buildings) in Section 141.0(b) 2I, J, K, and L. The current regulations specify compliance based on a maximum lighting power density (the total watts of the installed lighting over the total area of the lit space, expressed in watts per square foot), specify installation of particular types of lighting controls, and specify testing of those controls. This update provides a second compliance pathway based on a percent reduction in the installed lighting power, and makes additional streamlining revisions to the required lighting controls and acceptance testing.
