The backlight, uplight and glare (BUG) rating method in LEED’s light pollution reduction credit may sound strange to experienced LEED professionals, but it’s proving to be a winner for teams that are taking LEED v4 out for a spin. Even though this new option is more rigorous in terms of its actual impact, designers are finding it more straightforward and predictable, according to Chrissy Macken, manager of LEED at USGBC. For example, on an elementary school in Lake Mills, Wis., that credit has been solidly in the “yes” column from early in the design process; teams have rarely had that much confidence that early that they could achieve the light pollution reduction credit in previous versions of LEED. That’s just one example of how USGBC is simultaneously raising the bar on performance and simplifying documentation requirements in the new rating systems.
