My project is a part of a big master development, but is planning to have its own certification. This condition allows us purchasing chilled water from the master site. So, we will use the modeling method with purchased chilled water for the credit, Optimize Energy Performance.
However, I am wondering about the opportunity of pursuing the credit, Cooling Tower Water Use, if we use the campus approach to achieve the points with Cooling Tower Water Use. We can meet the requirements of the cooling towers in the master site. However, no cooling tower in our LEED boundary as our site will purchase the chilled water from the master site. In this case, can we also use the energy modeling method with the purchased chilled water?
