If the Lights object uses this schedule, then the load (W, W/ft2, W/person) will be multiplied by these values. From the I/O document:

Field: Schedule Name

The name of the schedule that modifies the lighting power design level (see Design Level Calculation Method field and >related subsequent fields). The schedule values can be any positive number. The electrical input for lighting in a >particular timestep is the product of the design level and the value of this schedule in that timestep. If the design level >is the maximum lighting power input the schedule should contain values between 0.0 and 1.0.
