Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
This agreement will fund the permitting of approximately twenty to 900 to 1500 square foot existing, abandoned residential homes to be renovated to zero-net energy structures. Specifically, equipment such as high-efficiency heat pumps and water heaters, smart thermostats, high R-value insulation, low-flow toilets and fixtures, and double or triple pane windows may be installed inside the homes. Small solar thermal and solar PV panels may be installed on the rooftops of the homes. These changes will not alter or expand the existing use of the homes, will not result in an expansion of the floor area of the homes, will not result in a scenic disturbance and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
