The commercial and public lighting method credits emissions reductions from projects that improve the energy performance of lighting systems in commercial and industrial buildings, as well as public areas, such as pedestrian, street and traffic lighting. By improving existing lighting systems less electricity is consumed and emissions associated with the generation of electricity are reduced.

The commercial and public lighting method supports a broad range of activities which may modify, replace or supplement a lighting system for the purpose of decreasing electricity usage of that system as a whole.

The method requires that the activities fall under the following broad categories:

  • modifying or replacing illumination equipment (such as lamps and ballasts)
  • installing lighting control systems (such as motion sensors, sensor lights, and programmable and manual dimmers), which affect the way lighting systems consume electricity, and
  • installing equipment that generates electricity for direct use by the lighting systems (such as integrated photovoltaic luminaire units).
