Lights-schedule

Hello, what does the following E+ snippet of code mean? "Schedule:Compact, LIGHT-SCHED, Fraction, Through: 12/31, For: Weekdays, Until: 05:00, 0.05, Until: 07:00, 0.1, Until: 08:00, 0.3, Until: 17:00, 0.9, Until: 18:00, 0.7, Until: 20:00, 0.5, Until: 22:00, 0.3, Until: 23:00, 0.1, Until: 24:00, 0.05,"

For example: "Until: 17:00, 0.9" does it mean that from 8:00 to 17:00 the lights are on for 90% of the time OR that the office uses 90% of the maximum wattage of lights during the whole time?

Thank you.
