Document Description
ABC Unified School District proposes to install one solar energy array on an elevated carport-like structure (Structure A) at Haskell MS. Structure A would be located over a grass field along the north side of asphalt courts towards the center of the campus and comprised of metal columns and beams supporting array panels, a minimum of 10-foot high. Structure A would consist of 324 photo-voltaic (PV) modules tilted at a 7-degree angle with the maximum power output system of 136.080 kilowatts (kW). Approximately 335 feet of conduit would be installed through directional borings from Structure A through the asphalt courts to an existing electrical equipment box (point of interconnection) near campus buildings on the south side of the campus. 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. The District and general community will benefit from a reduction in energy consumption and reduced energy costs.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15303, and 15314
Reasons for Exemption
The project involves the construction of a solar array on an elevated structure. 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 a middle 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.
