I was wondering why the BEopt lighting schedule seems to be different from the Building America lighting schedule; what is it based on? I also cannot seem to find or adjust the lighting schedule in BEopt.

This question was likely asked already on the BEopt forums, but they are no longer accessible. Will there be an archive of the prior BEopt forum posted somewhere?

We updated the BEopt lighting schedule algorithm to remove the mid-day valley, to better match recent measured lighting schedule data (e.g., RBSA from the Pacific Northwest).
