Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, sect. 15301 provides that projects which consist of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, and which involve negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency’s determination, are categorically exempt from the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act. The activities funded by this agreement are exempt under Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15301 because they involve minor energy efficient installation of plug load controls to an existing college campus and office buildings and will not have a significant effect on the environment. These technologies involve no expansion of existing use, with interior/exterior alterations to improve building performance.
