Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
This project consists of a minor alteration to an existing private facility through the installation of small new equipment. Specifically, ten lithium ion battery units along with supporting equipment such as inverters, a transformer and electrical panels and connections will be installed on a new concrete pad and connected to the existing electrical grid inside of a facility. The battery units and supporting equipment are collectively designed to fit in a standard sized shipping container, approximately 8 feet by 8 and ½ feet by 40 inches. The concrete pad will be approximately 16 feet by 40 feet. The project will not result in an increase of the floor area of the facility and will not expand the existing use of the facility. Therefore, the project falls within section 15301 and 15303 and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
