Lighting control: WattStopper

WattStopperJust as the DOE recognized ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2010 as the national energy standard, WattStopper launched a new CodeSmart publication designed to guide lighting and building professionals through the intricacies of the many lighting control requirements that debuted in this newest version of the code. The informative booklet titled, Discover lighting control solutions: Energy code compliance, also compares and contrasts multiple versions of today’s most widely adopted building energy codes: ASHRAE 90.1-2004, 2007 and 2010; IECC 2006, 2009 and 2012; and California Title 24-2008, and recommends code compliant control solutions.

This new publication is the latest addition to WattStopper’s well known CodeSmart initiative, and examines requirements for both indoor and outdoor lighting controls. The Code Compliance Guide section is designed as an easy-to-follow table with line by line comparisons of code requirements for performance in different space types and applications. Control Solution sections include best practice recommendations for major control mandates that are designed to meet code while also maximizing return on investment (ROI). Each solution includes a sample floorplan illustrating lighting, room layout and controls as well as a typical equipment list. Finally, the brochure examines tax saving opportunities available by exceeding code requirements as allowed under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct), which has been extended through 2013.

Discover lighting control solutionsis available online at along with helpful links to related information on energy codes, including the DOE announcement. The publication is the latest educational tool in WattStopper’s extensive library of brochures, videos, and interactive applications, and replaces earlier CodeSmart brochures. A companion pocket handbook will be available in early 2012 for quick on-the-job reference. Additionally, WattStopper offers AIA accredited education courses, including courses on code-related subject matter, which provide professionals with opportunities for continuing education units.
