FAQ F-00183
How should project teams demonstrate compliance with the Light Pollution credit using the time clock methodology?

To demonstrate compliance with the credit criteria for the Light Pollution to Neighbouring Bodies and/or Light Pollution to Night Sky, projects using a time clock methodology must ensure that all the relevant building lights are commissioned to ensure that the lights are operating as designed. Evidence of commissioning must be submitted as part of the Green Star assessment. 

 

For the purposes of the credit criteria Building Commissioning, all building lights, including those installed with a time clock, fall within the definition of 'nominated building systems'.
