NC-v4 SSc6: Light pollution reduction
Project location: United States
August 19, 2020
I'm workng on a project that is LZ2 and I was wondering I was wondering if I would be able to use the following fixture to uplight some trees http://www.waclighting.com/product/accent-120v/
How does one get the BUG rating of an adjustable light fixture?

BUG ratings are not intended for adjustible light fixtures. I would call it 100% uplight. B0 U4 G0. Which I doubt helps you.
You might be able to exempt it.
"lighting that is used solely for façade and landscape lighting in MLO lighting zones 3 and 4, and is automatically turned off from midnight until 6 a.m.;"
If you can't exempt it and can't use the BUG rating then you do the calculation method for uplight and have all 795 lumens count as uplight.

Is existing lighting required to be included in the calculations? What are the exceptions?
