NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Pursuant to Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 25402.1(h)(2) and Section 10-106 of Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, the City of Piedmont has applied to the California Energy Commission for a determination that its locally adopted energy efficiency standard, enacted in Local Ordinance 750 N.S. (the Ordinance), will require buildings to be designed to consume no more energy than permitted by the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (2019 Energy Standards) adopted by the Energy Commission. The Energy Commission’s Building Standards are set forth in Title 24, Part 6 of the California Code of Regulations. This ordinance requires the inclusion of energy efficiency measures, photovoltaic systems, and all-electric construction in new or existing low-rise residential buildings. Consistent with PRC Section 25402.1(h)(2), the Energy Commission found that the city of Piedmont’s Ordinance will require the diminution of energy consumption levels permitted by the 2019 Energy Standards.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15061(b)(3) and 15308
Reasons for Exemption
The Energy Commission previously found that its adoption of the California Green Building Code was exempt from CEQA pursuant to Title 14, Section 15061(b)(3). Additionally, a negative declaration was previously adopted for the California Building Energy Efficiency Standards as a whole. These standards are more protective of the environment than the state standards, and there are no reasonably foreseeable adverse impacts, and so there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. As the lead agency, the city of Piedmont also stated in its application to the Energy Commission that this activity is exempt from CEQA under Section 15061(b)(3) and 15308 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations.
