NC-v4 EAc2: Optimize energy performance
Project location: Brazil
August 29, 2017
The LEED v4 Guide steps that it's possible only apply any savings from ON-SITE renewable energy systems? Or is it possible to work with OFF-SITE renewable energy systems to determine energy cost savings? Thanks!

They can be offsite under certain conditions. See the credit language in EAc5.

Thank you Marcus. I didn't found anything in EAc5. Can you help me? Thanks a lot.

EAc5 spells out the requirements for off-site renewable systems such as solar gardens.

The energy cost offset from onsite renewable energy cannot be used to demonstrate compliance with the prerequisite. Can this cost offset still be credited to the proposed energy cost savings for this credit?
