Has Telecom ever contributed to a single LEED point?
Building developers can get points under Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) and reduce construction costs by installing Power over Ethernet (PoE), according to some experts.
Rick Huijbregts, vice-president of Smart and Connected Communities at Cisco Systems Canada Co.(NASDAQ:CSCO), recently said his firm has been able to help customers get up to five innovation credits under LEED by eliminating wiring, meaning less material ends up in landfill.
In this article, Cisco is boasting that it can “help customers get up to five innovation credits” under LEED by utilizing PoE components.
Please, someone – anyone – provide a project example that actually got LEED points through Division 27 specifications. General has the non-halogen riser Category copper cable that COULD help get a pilot point. And the case with Cisco, “being able to help” isn’t the same as actually helping or being directly responsible for attaining LEED points.
