Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 21080(b)(1); 15268
Reasons for Exemption
The project qualifies for a ministerial exemption from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to 15268 of the CEQA Guidelines. The project falls within the categorical exemption for minor alterations to land and facilities, as it involves the installation of EV chargers in an existing electric yard without significant environmental impacts. Additionally, projects of this nature and scale typically do not require CEQA analysis due to their limited scope and negligible environmental effects. To ensure compliance with building codes and regulations, a building permit is required for the connection of the EV chargers to the power source. This permit is necessary to guarantee the safe and functional installation of the EV charging infrastructure.
