Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, § 15303 exempts the construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; the installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made tin the exterior of the structure. This project will involve the installation of a limited number of small energy storage batteries, which may require the alteration or reconstruction of an existing concrete pad. The installation will require minimal construction activity. The equipment will be placed within the existing industrial facility. It is possible additional small concrete pads will be poured or small enclosures will be built for supporting systems such as electrical support equipment. This minimal construction is well within the size limits listed in 14 C.C.R. 15303. This construction will not have a significant impact on local air quality, noise, or traffic and will not induce additional operations at the site.
