Are rechargeable battery-powered task lighting units acceptable for this credit? The manual makes only this comment on page 398: "Task lighting does not need to be hardwired to meet the requirements of this credit: outlet-powered task lighting provides a simple and effective way to add additional control in existing buildings".

I don't see why battery powered task lights won't count towards the fulfillment of this credit. It seems like this lighting meets the intent of the credit which is to provide additional lighting controls for the occupants. So as long 50% or more of the individual workstations have these task lights, it should meet the requirements of this credit.
