For projects pursuing EAc Enhanced Commissioning Option 2 – Envelope Commissioning,
can the Building Envelope Commissioning Authority (BeCxA) meet the credit’s experience requirements if their BeCxA experience is only with non-LEED projects?

Yes, the Building Envelope Commissioning Authority does not specifically need to demonstrate experience on LEED projects, however, they will need to submit a document describing envelope commissioning process experience on at least two building projects with a similar scope of work.
