New York proposes NOx and PM limits for diesel and natural gas DG engines.

December 30, 2015

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is proposing Part 222 to set emission limitations of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) for distributed generation (DG) sources, which includes diesel generators and natural gas-fired engines generally used to provide back-up power for large buildings such as hospitals and office buildings, according to a December 21, 2015 Trinity Consultants report.New York DEQ logo

The proposed rule (Part 222) would apply to:

  • DG Sources with nameplate ratings greater than 150 kilowatts (kW) in the New York City Metropolitan Area and 300 kW throughout the rest of the state; and
  • Units participating in “demand response” programs.
  • Larger units that qualify as major sources under 6 NYCRR Subpart 227-2 and smaller units typically found in smaller buildings;
  • Units operating only in emergency circumstances (e.g. during a power outage);
  • New sources covered by stricter federal emission limits; and
  • Non-emitting sources of energy such as solar panels.

The proposed emission standards are equivalent to the standards applicable to major sources covered by NYSDEC’s Subpart 227-2 (NOx RACT) regulations. If an existing DG source does not meet stricter federal new source performance standards, NOx control equipment will need to be installed. Owners of DG sources may also comply by either, replacing the sources with new units subject to the federal standards for new sources, or, limit operation to emergency conditions only, as defined in 6 NYCRR Part 200. Covered DG sources must comply with the emission standards by May 1, 2016.

Written statements on this proposed rule may be submitted to the NYSDEC until 5 pm, February 18, 2016. Oral comments will also be accepted during the public hearings held on February 8th, 9th, and 11th of 2016.
