The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to study commercial lighting compliance at local building jurisdictions around the Northwest. The fundamental approach used in this study was to review lighting designs which had been submitted to nine local building departments across the Northwest region and assess, first, if sufficient data was included in the submittal to ascertain whether the design met the applicable energy code and, if so, to determine whether or not it actually met the code. Both lighting power densities (LPD) and lighting controls were reviewed. A subset of the buildings which had their plans reviewed was then visited in person to see if the installed lighting matched the lighting plan that was submitted. Ninety-one plans were reviewed ( 46 office and 45 retail) and 29 buildings received site visits.
