New Lighting Regulations: Current NYC lighting laws and codes

Date: February 26, 2013

Time: 8:30 am

Host: Green Light New York

Type: Lecture/Presentation


The world of lighting design is changing rapidly. Alongside continual technological advancements, the codes and laws that govern the design and construction of lighting systems are being progressively improved. New laws, stricter codes, and new DoB filing requirements now effect most all NYC spaces. Green Light New York has developed a concise and vital three-part series of presentations on how to meet and exceed these new lighting requirements. Offered in 90 min segments, the presentations cover 1) the laws and regulations themselves, 2) strategies for applying the new requirements to lighting retrofit projects, and 3) demystifying lighting controls.


Each course provides 1.5 AIA HSW/SD learning units. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.


New Lighting Regulations is offered the morning of February 26th. Lighting Retrofits the morning of February 27th and Lighting Controls the morning of February 28th.


The instructor of New Lighting Regulations will cover the following:

– Overview of Greener Greater Building Plan Lighting Upgrade law

– Overview of the NYC Energy Code lighting requirements

– Laws, code, and compliance;

– Strategies to meet or exceed code;

– Sources of funding, rebates & incentives


The courses in the series are independent; attend one or all, in any order.


Previous deliveries of these courses sold out quickly and were very well reviewed.


Green Light New York would like to thank Lutron for hosting this event.
