Ohio EPA Issues RICE NESHAP Compliance Advisory Notice For Peak Shaving Using Emergency Electrical Generators

June 1, 2013

On 15 May 2013 the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) issued a Compliance Advisory Notice regarding the operation of emergency electrical generators, permitted by Ohio EPA’s permit-by-rule (PBR), for peak shaving or other non-emergency demand response situations. Ohio EPA logo

Pursuant to the Director’s Final Findings and Orders, Ohio EPA Director, Scott Nally, stated that Ohio EPA will not consider peak shaving operations by owners and operators of emergency electrical generators to be a violation of their Emergency Generator Permit By Rule, from April 30, 2013 through May 3, 2014, if the owners or operators comply with the RICE NESHAP’s operating restrictions and reporting requirements. Such owners and operators will not be required to apply for and obtain a revised permit to allow for peak shaving operation for this one-time, 50-hour operating period that expires May 3, 2014. Such owners and operators will, however, need to maintain all records required under the RICE NESHAP for peak shaving operation and submit a copy of those records to Ohio EPA by May 15, 2014.

For all other owners and operators of emergency electrical generators that are operating under an Emergency Generator PBR, however, Ohio regulations have not changed. If your emergency electrical generator is not an area source of hazardous air pollutants, or is not subject to the RICE NESHAP, you may not use your emergency generators for peak shaving or non-emergency demand response under the Emergency Generator PBR.

What this means to you

Ohio has issued compliance guidelines for emergency electrical generators stating they will not be required to obtain a revised permit to allow for peak shavings for the one-time 50-hour operating period that expires 3 May 2014 but must maintain all records required under RICE NESHAP for peak shaving operation and submit those records by 15 May 2014.
