​The purpose of this regulatory advice is to clarify when certain lights may be excluded from a lighting system, for projects using the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative—Commercial and Public Lighting) Methodology Determination 2015 (the determination).

Under the determination, a lighting system is defined as one or more sets of lighting equipment that together deliver all the artificial light that is intended to be provided to a particular area (the serviced area). The serviced area is the area where a lighting system delivers all the artificial light that is intended to be provided.

Subsection 19(b)(ii) of the determination allows for the inclusion of a lighting system where any modification to the lighting system since commission is minor or trivial. Examples of minor and trivial modifications include addition of temporary and/or seasonal lighting in a serviced area, such as temporary spot lighting and Christmas lighting.

Where temporary and/or seasonal lighting is added to a serviced area and where these lights are not intended to provide artificial light to the serviced area, these lights could be excluded from the lighting system. This means in calculating abatement for a lighting system, the temporary and seasonal lighting equipment may be excluded from the calculations.​
