[Bldg-sim] Claiming savings from receptacle loads

IBC 2012 requires occupancy sensors on receptacles for space types. The C&S building I am modeling is using LEED V3 (90.1 2009).

I would like to claim savings on receptacle loads by reducing my receptacle schedule in the proposed model to 0% during unoccupied hours (down from 5%) and possibly lower my percentages during occupied hours to account for vampire loads.

Has anyone had success claiming savings for receptacle load reduction in terms of getting it through USGBC? Any documentation or procedures you could point me to that would be helpful?
