We have a 20 Hectare site with 600+ units that is designed to meet the Solar Orientation credit requirements. We are expecting to have more than 85% of our blocks within 15 degrees of geographical east-west. However, in Table 2, on page 25 of the reference guide it suggests that the credit must meet the requirements by the time the 1st building is occupied. Does this mean that if our schedule has one of our first 4 buildings to be occupied being built north-south that we won't achieve the credit?
This seems like a strange timeline requirement for a neighborhood wide credit.
