Reasons for Exemption
This project involves the installation of approximately 48 electric vehicle chargers, and supporting hardware, housed within approximately 6 shipping containers, at an existing paved parking lot. The containers will be installed on the parking lot, connected to existing electrical panels also located within the existing lot, and will involve negligible or no expansion of use. Therefore, the project falls within section 15301 and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
This project consists of installation of approximately 6, 20' shipping containers pre-fabricated with electric vehicle charging equipment installed inside each container. There will be a total of approximately 48 charging stations inside all of the containers. The overall dimensions are approximately 278' x 66'. Therefore, the project falls within section 15303 and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
In this project, minor trenching may be necessary to lay two-inch conduit from the existing electrical panel to the charging equipment, totaling approximately 2 cubic feet per foot of distance from the electrical panel, to connect the proposed new electric vehicle charging station equipment to an existing electrical supply panel. The trenching will take place on currently paved ground, will not involve the removal of any trees, and surface will be restored. Therefore, the project falls within section 15304 and will not have a significant effect on the environment.
