I can find no evidence that the 2-year period needs to start as soon as the building is finished, is that the case?

I have one project that wants to wait for about 3-6 months for all tenants and contracts to be in place. So the contract will start shortly afterwards, is this ok? (We will not submit Construction submittal until we have the contract).

Another project will be completed in two stages within the same project. One part could start their 2-year contract once they are done and the other half once they are completed )a year later) right? So we would have two contracts starting at different times, but the total amount of kWh would be sufficient to meet the credit.

Thank you!
