Readily Available Permit: Engine Power Generation

This New Source Review (NSR) initial permit authorizes operations of up to ten diesel-fired engines and up to ten associated diesel storage tanks for the purpose of power generation.

The application workbook contains step-by-step instructions, specific qualifying criteria, and technical information including emission calculations, the Best Available Control Technology, and the draft Special Conditions.

If you cannot meet the qualifying criteria or do not agree with the technical representations in the workbook, you will receive notice that the application has been voided and you should seek a different type of authorization as appropriate. Refer to Types of New Source Review Authorizations.
