We have a very singular high-rise Project in the city centre. The light levels around the whole boundary are quite high, so we are thinking about pursuing Option 2 because the difference with the exterior lights on and off is not too big.
However, the exterior lights point upwards to light the building façade. They do not spill over the boundary...but up to the sky.
So, considering Option 2, would this credit be possible for us if we demonstrate the 20% lighting level compliance?

Option 2 has no mention of uplight. This is a major difference between EBOM and NC. You can follow Option 2 for this credit and not worry about the uplight. Mostly because there's no practical way to field measure uplight over a site.
Just comply with the measurements at the boundary.
