CLTC Releases 2019 Update to the Daylight Harvesting for Commercial Buildings Guide

Published: Fri, 04/23/2021

CLTC is excited to release our updated Daylight Harvesting for Commercial Buildings guide!  This publication provides guidance towards meeting and exceeding California's 2019 Energy Code for daylight harvesting.

Daylight design guidelines and Energy Code requirements are provided in an easy to read, side-by-side layout, organized into sections for each building-related discipline that impacts daylight performance from building siting, through architectural and interior design, to construction, commissioning and operation. 

Renewable Energy & Advanced Lighting Systems for Exterior Applications

Exterior lighting generally operates from early evening through early morning, a period of little to no renewable energy generation, which means this lighting is primarily powered by carbon-dense fossil fuels. Fossil fuel use is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), poor air quality, water pollution and land degradation. In addition, low-quality exterior lighting characterized by poor color, inappropriate light distribution, and inadequate light levels has also been linked to increased crime rates and reduced physical activity within the surrounding community.
