Am I to understand correctly that energy reduction will now be based on not only site energy (by cost), but also the source EUI? It seems that source EUI is based almost entirely on what geographic region the project is located in (i.e. energy mix from eGrid). I understand the desire to pull in this important factor of energy efficiency, but it raises a whole slew of issues:
1. This is more a Location and Linkages credit since it is based on geographic location of project. Even then, most LL credits can be earned by moving a project across town, but to make a significant change in primary EUI, would mean a move across the state or even nation.
2. This isn't something the project team really has control over.
3. The difference between the source and site energy has nothing to do with the efficiency of the building.

Any thoughts?so
