43Sustainable SitesExemplaryPerformanceSS Credit 4.3: Alternative Transportation, Low-Emitting and Fuel-Efficient VehiclesDOCUMENTATION & CALCULATIONSOption 1: (NC/CS/Schools)On a site plan, highlight the total number of parking spaces and clearly identify preferred spaces for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles. For discounted parking, assemble information about the discount program and how it is communicated to occupants.Figure 1 from the LEED Reference Guide for Green Building Design and Construction, 2009. Page 67. Location of Preferred Parking.Option 2: (NC/CS)Prepare information about the number of fueling stations provided and the alternative-fuel station types, manufacturers, model numbers, and fueling capacity per station.Option 3: (NC)• Provide information on the FTE value and calculation showing the number of qualifying vehicles that must be provided.Equations 1 from the LEED Reference Guide for Green Building Design and Construction, 2009. Page 65. Total FTE Occupant.Total FTE Occupants=Total Occupant Hours——————————8• Record information about purchased vehicles (make, model, and fuel type).• Prepare a site plan showing the location of preferred parking spaces.Option 4: (NC)• Prepare information about low-emitting and fuel-efficient shared vehicles, including quantity, make, model, and fuel type.Equations 2 from the LEED Reference Guide for Green Building Design and Construction, 2009. Page 66. Number of Low-Emitting and Fuel-Efficient Vehicles.Number of Low-Emitting and Fuel-Efficient Vehicles=FTE Occupancy——————————267• Retain a copy of the contractual agreement with the vehicle-sharing program.• Assemble information about the vehicle-sharing program, including estimates of the number of customers served per vehicle and descriptions of its administration.• Develop a site plan or area map that highlights a pedestrian walkway from the parking area to the project site.Option 5: (Schools)• Perform calculations showing the percentage of vehicles or fuel consumption that meets the requirements.• Assemble information about the alternative-fuel and/or low-emitting or high-efficiency vehicle program.TIME LINE/TEAMSTANDARDSNoneNOTESProviding a 20% or greater discounted parking rate is an acceptable substitute for preferred parking for low-emitting/fuel-efficient vehicles via Option 1.
