Document Description
Pursuant to public resources code section 25402.1 and section 10-106 of title 24 of the CA Code of Regulations, the city of Novato has applied to the Energy Commission for a determination that its locally adopted energy efficiency standard, enacted in local ordinance 1612 section 2, will require buildings to be designed to consume no more energy than permitted by the Building Energy Efficiency Standards adopted by the Energy Commission. The Energy Commission's building standards are set forth in title 24, part 6 of regulations. The ordinance requires all new low-rise residential buildings to be designed to use 15% less energy than the allowed energy budget established by the 2016 standards. Consistent with PRC section 25402.10h2, the Energy Commission found that the city of Novato's Ordinance will require the diminution of energy consumption levels permitted by the 2016 building energy efficiency standards.

Reasons for Exemption
The finding by the Energy Commission required by PRC section 25402.1h2. that the city of Novato ordinance will require the diminution of energy consumption levels permitted by the 2016 building energy efficiency standards, involves the comparison of the energy savings of the ordinance pursuant to an objective fixed standard, and does not require the exercise of judgement or deliberation on the part of the Energy Commission. It is therefore a ministerial act consistent with section 15369 of title 14 of regulations, and is exempt from CEQA.
