Paul,

As a caution, If you're looking into 90.1-2001 LPD's in the context of
EPAct, be sure you're aware of Addendum G and that you're using the
correct set of values (see attached discussion from [bldg-sim]).

On a related note -COMcheck is a very handy free tool to be aware of:

http://www.energycodes.gov/comcheck/download.stm

This tool puts a lot of energy codes (LPD's, specifically) at your
fingertips.

Thank you for the information.? I downloaded ComCheck, and yes, this is for
EPAct.? What I need at present is what is the allowable (w/sf) for a warehouse
in 90.1-2001.?I want to be able to give the lighting designer what their maximum
is.

Thanks!

To figure LPD?s quickly, COMcheck is my weapon of choice ? alongside an area takeoff.

Select 90.1-2001 as your code from the top menu, then go through the first screen entering space areas using the dropdown menus. You?ll have a total allowable LPD in the end.

Depending on whether you have ?fine material storage,? you may or may not want to go space-by-space? vs. whole building method for a warehouse? it doesn?t take long to explore both.

Remember, EPAct has a caveat for warehouses if doing the interim lighting rule.
