Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301(c), 15303, 15304(f)
Reasons for Exemption
This project will involve the installation of at least 12 single port bidirectional chargers across four parking lot sites owned by three school districts in Northern California (Fremont USD, Pittsburgh USD, and Napa Valley USD). The installations will result in minor altercations to existing facilities with no expansion beyond the existing facilities and will not have a significant effect on the environment. This project therefore falls under categorical exemption listed in CEQA Guidelines Section 15301(c) Class 1 Existing Facilities. The charger installation will require minor trenching and backfilling where the surface is restored, and therefore, the project also falls under the categorical exemption of CEQA Guidelines §15304 (f) Class 4. Section 15303 provides that projects which consist of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities or structures; installation of small new equipment and facilities in small structures; and the conversion of existing small structures from one use to another where only minor modifications are made in the exterior of the structure, are categorically exempt from the provisions of CEQA. This project consists of installation of new single port bidirectional chargers to existing sites. The equipment will be installed in existing, paved parking lots. Therefore, the project falls within section 15303 and will not have a significant effect on the environment. Further, none of the exceptions listed in CEQA Guidelines Section 15300.2 apply to this project.
