I am working on a project where the ownership has a policy that requires 100% of equipment and appliances to be ENERGY STAR-rated. However, for this particular project, the equipment and appliances are being relocated from another facility and are not within the project scope of work.
1. Would the project be eligible for points under ENERGY STAR Equipment and Appliances although there are no new equipment and appliances being purchased? It would seem unfair for the project to not be eligible despite having 100% ENERGY STAR-rated equipment and appliances.
2. Has anyone ever successfully shown compliance using a 100% ENERGY STAR-rated equipment and appliances policy instead of individual calculations?
