§ 8-103. Application. On or before April first, nineteen hundred
eighty, the commissioner shall promulgate, and thereafter may amend from
time to time, standards relating to the lighting of all existing
buildings, or classes of such buildings, for purposes of minimizing the
consumption of energy and providing for the efficient utilization of the
energy expended for lighting in the use and occupancy of such buildings.
Such standards shall be cost effective and shall not impair the health
and safety of the occupants of the property. The standards shall be
deemed cost effective if the cost of implementing them would be equal to
or less than the present value of energy and maintenance savings that
would be expected over a seven-year period in a building to which the
standards are applicable.
