E lighting is a building code and is not really addressed by the NEC . This means it will vary according to the standard the AHJ has adopted.

Yes, national construction codes are 1 ft candle at ground level at all exit doors that lead outside.
And egress path ways.

There's light all the way to all the property lines when the power goes out? Where do you install these lights? I can see adding them to the lot lights, but what about other areas? Do you install additional poles all over hither and yon?

I'm sure such a requirement can be quite profitable, having to charge hundreds of thousands of dollars to install lighting all over a property just to comply with such a silly rule.

Egress path way is the area just outside the exit doors
Didn't think i needed to explain that one, but i'll try to be more specific in the future.

Kinda makes sense, it's not a means of egress.


Although , I agree, it would be a good place for one.

Those of you in NH have probably dealt with this bullshi. Dover NH enforces this same crap Inspections after dusk with Jimmy and Rebecca dragging a light meter ALONG THE FLOOR
Last inspection I failed, I kept asking why they haven't tripped and fallen yet

Very few structures are built right up to the property lines.

True, but when you start getting cities like Seattle changing the building code to reduce the setbacks and allowing buildings to be on the property lines, you will start to see these crazy codes pop up.
