Can I earn a pilot credit for something I’ve done in an existing LEED credit?
Usually, yes. In some cases USGBC pilots a credit that is similar to an existing LEED credit. For example, some pilot credits are revised LEED v2009 credits that are being tested before being used in LEED v4. Projects using these pilot credits give valuable feedback about the differences between the two versions. In these cases, a project team may use the existing credit and the pilot credit. However, pilot credits are only available to certain rating systems. If the pilot credit you’re looking at does not have your rating system listed as applicable, you cannot pursue the pilot credit.
