Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Daylighting calculation

The key here is that daylighting reference points are always relative 
to the zone origin.  If you are using world coordinates and put your 
zone origins all at 0,0,0, then your reference points can be in world 
coordinates.  But if the zone origins are not 0,0,0, the reference 
points must be relative to the zone origins.  That is the problem in 
this file.
