NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This is a research study that aims to inform state policies related to decarbonization and energy equity by quantifying the indoor air quality (IAQ) and health benefits of cooking electrification and exposure reduction interventions in the homes of children with asthma in three disadvantaged communities in California's Central Valley. The only permitting will be for the electrical circuits that will be installed at study homes to enable installation of an electric range. Permits will be obtained by the electrical contractors as required by the local jurisdictions.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15306
Reasons for Exemption
Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, sect. 15306 consists of basic data collection, research, experimental management, and resource evaluation activities which do not result in a serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource. This project is exempt under Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15306 because this is a research project that involves measurement of air quality and asthma assessment among children in the households of under-resourced communities of California. For these reasons, the proposed research project will have no significant effect on the environment and is categorically exempt under section 15306.
