Document Description
The District proposes to install solar energy panels on two elevated carport-like structure (Structures A and B) at Bragg ES. Structures A and B would be installed along the border line of the turf field and the hardcourts north of the school building. Structures A and B would be a minimum of 10-foot high and comprised of metal columns and beams supporting array panels. Structures A and B would be located side by side, a slightly larger Structure A would be on the west side and Structure B on the east. Structure A would consist of 324 photo-voltaic (PV) modules tilted at 7 degrees angle, and Structure B would consist of 198 PV modules tilted at a 7-degree angle. The structures would connect to an existing electrical equipment box next to a school building in the front of the campus by installing approximately 583 feet of underground conduit through directional boring underneath the turf field, paved hardcourts, and concrete pavement (see Figure 2). Structures A and B would have direct current (DC) system size of 136.080 kilowatts (kW) and 83.169 kW, respectively, for a combined system total of 219.240 kW. The project would also provide underground conduit for installation of car chargers in the future. However, Installation of car chargers require additional funding and would not be installed at this time.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15303, and 15314
Reasons for Exemption
The project involves the construction of solar energy array on elevated structures. The proposed solar array will not result in an increase in student capacity or an expansion of existing use. No off-campus improvements will occur. Existing use of the facility as an elementary school will stay the same under the proposed project. Therefore, the project is exempt from CEQA under Sections 15301, 15303, and 15314. The proposed project was also reviewed for possible exceptions under Section 15300.2 and found that the exceptions do not apply. See Attachment to Notice of Exemption for further explanation of the evaluation, which is available at the ABC Unified School District Office, 16700 Norwalk Blvd, Cerritos, CA 90703.
