NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project proposes two Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) for the Sonoma Developmental Center. The first measure (lighting) includes replacing existing inefficient light fixtures with lower wattage higher efficiency light fixtures in buildings and upgrading exterior lighting. This ECM will provide energy efficiency upgrades. The second measure (HVAC) includes converting existing constant volume multi-zone units by installing variable air volume (VAV) conversion "kits" and variable-frequency drive (VFDs) to control the supply fan in the Nelson, Johnson/Ordahl and Emparan/Regamay Buildings. In ventilation system, VAV and VFDs on fans save energy by allowing the volume of air moved to match the system demand. The construction contractor will follow any hazardous material waste handling and disposal with respect to appropriate local, state, and federal rules/regulations.
