  • 21. Terminology • • • • Reference Building is a building that is located in the same climate zone as the taxpayer’s building and is otherwise comparable to the taxpayer’s building except that its interior lighting systems, heating, cooling, ventilation, and hot water systems, and building envelope meet the minimum requirements of Standard 90.1-2001 Qualified Individual - (1) Is not related to the taxpayer claiming the deduction under § 179D; (2) Is an engineer or contractor that is properly licensed as a professional engineer or contractor in the jurisdiction in which the building is located; and (3) Has represented in writing to the taxpayer that he or she has the requisite qualifications to provide the certification required. Designer - a person that creates the technical specifications for installation of energy efficient commercial building property. For example, an architect, engineer, contractor, environmental consultant or energy services provider who creates the technical specifications for a new building or an addition to an existing building. A person that merely installs, repairs, or maintains the property is not a designer. Interim Rule - (i) Achieve a reduction in lighting power density of at least 25 percent (50 percent in the case of a warehouse) of the minimum requirements in Table 9.3.1.1 or Table 9.3.1.2 (not including additional interior lighting power allowances) of Standard 90.1-2001. 12/11/2013 21
