NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This Agreement by CDWR and SMUD is considered an action to fund and otherwise support appropriate feasibility and planning studies, as those terms are used in Public Resources Code, Section 21102 and 21150 and CEQA Guidelines Section 15262, for possible future actions which CDWR and SMUD have not approved, adopted, or funded. This Agreement is also an action to allow for basic data collection, research, experimental management, and resource evaluation activities, as those terms are used in CEQA Guidelines Section 15306.This Agreement will enable SMUD to perform contract scope development and supporting activities for contracts that are prerequisites to obtaining service, if any, from SMUD and receiving energy, if any, over SMUD's transmission system, for a future possible conveyance facility, if any. Nothing in this agreement shall be construed to predetermine CDWR's decision after completion of the CEQA process and CDWR may determine, consistent with the completed analysis under CEQA, that no conveyance project shall be approved. The information collection, and feasibility and planning studies would help inform potential requirements for a transmission interconnection service contract, a dynamic energy scheduling contract, a transmission wheeling contract, and other contracts, as needed, or no contracts, if none are needed. This Agreement will terminate on December 31, 2021 unless terminated earlier by either party or mutually extended. The Agreement's budget will be capped at $35,000 and may be increased by agreement if the scope of activities require more time or effort. In addition, CDWR may provide SMUD with a temporary notice to stop work
