ENB Region 1 Completed Applications 11/23/2011

Nassau County

Applicant:

National Grid Glenwood Energy Center LLC

Facility:

Shore Rd
Glenwood Landing, NY 11547

Application ID:

1-2824-02146/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Oyster Bay, Nassau County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared draft permits and made a tentative determination to approve the application to renew the facility's Title V and Title IV permits. The permits will be renewed for 5 more years, and the Title V permit will be modified to include conditions recently promulgated under regulations 6 NYCRR Parts 243, 244, and 245. These regulations require facilities to obtain/possess at least as many 'allocations' of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) as they emit into the atmosphere during a specified period of time. An 'allocation' is a unit of pollution which is limited by a budget established by the regulations. The Department developed these regulations in response to the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) recent "Clean Air Interstate Rule" (CAIR). The regulations are included in New York's ' State Implementation Plan' (SIP) which has been approved by EPA as required by the Clean Air Act of 1990.

This facility is an existing 79.9 MW simple cycle power plant consisting of two GE LM 6000 combustion turbines and associated equipment.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
