1: Efficient Infrastructure: Lighting


Intent Credit Requirements
To reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with infrastructure lighting including, road, public, traffic and signage.

GENERAL
Demonstrate that energy efficient lighting strategies have been incorporated into the communitys infrastructure lighting design. All roadway, pathway and amenity lighting shall be designed in accordance with the following standards: IESNA RP 33 99 Lighting for Exterior Environments IESNA RP 8 Roadway Lighting A maximum of 6 points are awarded for achieving the following: Energy Consumption 4 Credit Points: The power density of all roadway, pathway and amenity lighting shall not exceed 80% of the figure specified for exterior areas and 50% of the figure specified for landscape features in the IECC 2009, Section 505.6.2 Exterior Lighting. Illuminated signage should be considered as street frontage for the purposes of power density. Controls 2 Credit Points: Demonstrate that all of the following have been achieved: o All lighting not designated for dusk-to-dawn operation shall be controlled by either a combination of a photocell and a time switch, or an astronomical time switch o All lighting designated for dusk-to-dawn operation shall be controlled by an astronomical time switch or photocell o All time switches, including astronomical types, shall be capable of retaining programming and time settings during loss of power for a minimum period of 72 hours o All lighting shall be turned off at 24:00hrs, unless required for safety reasons. If needed for safety, lighting levels shall be lowered to those recommended in IESNA RP-33-99 and IES RP-8 o All security lighting shall be activated using motion sensors so that luminaires are only on when someone is in the immediate area.

Credit Submission: Design Rating

Energy Consumption: External lighting drawings, specifications and calculations confirming the lighting power densities of all roadway, pathway and amenity lighting. Controls: Lighting control strategy confirming that all external lighting shall be controlled as required; Specifications of all control measures: photocell, time switch or astronomical time switch as required; and Method for retaining programming for 72 hours during periods of loss of power.

Credit Submission: Construction Rating

Energy Consumption: As-built external lighting drawings, specifications and calculations confirming the lighting power densities of all roadway, pathway and amenity lighting. Controls: Lighting control strategy confirming that all external lighting shall be controlled as per the credit requirements; Specifications of all control measures: photocell, time switch or astronomical time switch as required; and Method for retaining programming for 72 hours during periods of loss of power.

Calculations and Methodology

Infrastructure lighting refers to all artificial lighting sources located in the public realm, including but not limited to: Roadway lighting Pathway lighting Public amenity lighting (parks, corniches, boardwalks etc) Traffic lights Directional signage lighting Advertising display lighting
