The 2022 Energy Code requirements for outdoor lighting wattage allowances and controls depends not only on building type, but also scope of work (such as new construction versus alterations). Join us for this one-hour presentation where we review outdoor lighting requirements for single-family, multifamily, nonresidential, hotel and motel building types of all applicable scopes of work and what compliance documentation is required for each project type.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize when outdoor lighting wattage allowances and controls are required for single-family, multifamily, hotel/motel or nonresidential sites.
  • Understand how compliance is documented for outdoor lighting as dictated by the building type and project scope.
  • Explain how the outdoor lighting requirements differ for alteration projects versus new construction.
  • Identify online resources for more guidance on these topics.
