43 Sustainable Sites Exemplary Performance SS Credit 4.3: Alternative Transportation, Low-Emitting and Fuel-Efficient Vehicles DOCUMENTATION & CALCULATIONS Option 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/TEAM STANDARDS None NOTES Providing a 20% or greater discounted parking rate is an acceptable substitute for preferred parking for low-emitting/fuel-efficient vehicles via Option 1.
