Project is Located: in Manhattan in New York County.
Project Description:

Con Edison has submitted an application to establish Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) resulting from the future shutdown of its Waterside Generating Station located at 700 First Avenue, NY, NY (Manhattan County.) Waterside is a steam generating facility subject to 6NYCRR Part 201 consisting of four very large boilers each capable of burning residual oil, distillate oil and natural gas. Two of the boilers are rated at 928 million Btu/hour and the remaining two boilers are rated at 1,382 million Btu/hour. The ERCs resulting from the shutdown of the Waterside plant are proposed to be used by Con Edison at their East River Repowering project located at 801 E. 14 St., NY, NY. The future shutdown of Waterside will result in gross emission reductions for each emission reduction contaminant as follows: VOC = 47.1 TPY; Nox = 899.1 TPY; PM-10 = 70.4 TPY; CO = 206.9 TPY. For PM-10 and CO, the full amount of the ERC is available to the applicant for use as offsets. For VOC and NOx, as per 6NYCRR Part 231-2.6, 25% of the ERCs are retained by the Department. The remaining 75% of the NOx and VOC ERCs, amounting to 674.3 TPY for NOx and 35.3 TPY for VOC, are available to the applicant for use as offsets. The Department recommends approval of this Emission Reduction Credit application.
