Document Description
The purpose of this Agreement is to fund the deployment of the Basset-Avocado Advanced Energy Community (BAAEC) developed in Phase I. Community solar PV and battery storage systems will be installed on private deployment sites, funded and managed by a private solar developer. A microgrid resiliency hub will be created at a strategic, central location within the community to provide self-powered and islanded energy refuge for various types of emergencies. A mobile grid consisting of EV chargers and an EV microtransit and vanpooling program will be implemented to provide the community with access to low emission transportation options.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, § 15301
Reasons for Exemption
Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, § 15301: This categorical exemption applies to projects which consist of operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, which involves negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's CEQA determination. This agreement will fund the installation of rooftop solar PV, parking canopy with solar PV, ground mounted solar PV, a battery storage system and EV charging stations at a private site within the Basset-Avocado community. The construction activities outside of the existing structures include the construction of parking canopy structures and the solar PV ground mount and minor trenching for laying new electrical conduit, pulling wire and relaying asphalt on top to connect the energy systems to grid infrastructure and electricity meters. Rooftop solar PV and battery storage will also be installed at private residences in the Basset-Avocado community. These modifications will not result in any expansion of an existing use. For these reasons, the proposed work will not have any significant effect on the environment and falls under section 15301.
