Tool Credit Points Available Contribution Symbol Contribution Potential Detail
Homestar   EHC - 3  2   tick  Up to 2 Points (assuming outdoor 'best lighting' achieved)  

This credit rewards energy efficient lighting options according to fair / good / better and best lighting achievements. "Best" lighting requires indoor lamps to have an efficacy above 35 lumens per watt with integral fitting or dedicated base. BLS MR16 provides efficiency up to110 lumens per watt, and is not replaceable with less efficient options due to the control gear in the base. This meets Homestar requirements and can help contribute towards 'Best lighting".

Symbol Manner in which the product may contribute towards points
Products must meet specific criteria (e.g. Paint VOC emissions, carpets, etc)
Products may help achieve points by their very nature, if they are specified and included in the design in accordance with Green Star NZ requirements (e.g. bicycle racks)
Products may help achieve an outcome but they must be used in a specific manner (e.g. lightingcontrol and zoning systems) OR this product can contribute towards the outcome but many other products or factor influence that same outcome (e.g. Potable Water Calculator)
