Project is Located: Schenectady, Schenectady County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility (ASF) permit application for new construction from General Electric (GE) Turbine Plant located at 1 River Road, Schenectady, NY 12345 in Schenectady County.  The facility, owned by General Electric Co. of Fairfield, Connecticut, is engaged in the manufacture of steam turbines and generators.  The applicant has proposed to accept a cap on emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) which will restrict the potential to emit of the portion of the facility involved in the new construction to a level which is less than the Part 231-2 (New Source Review in Non Attainment Areas) significant emission rate.  In addition, the applicant has also proposed to accept a cap on emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) which will restrict the potential to emit of the portion of the facility involved in the new construction to a level which is less than the 40CFR 52, Subpart A (Prevention of Significant Deterioration in Attainment Areas) significant emission rate.  The significant emission rate is the difference between future potential and prior actual emissions and is 40 tons per year for NOx and 100 tons per year for CO.  By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, GE Turbine Plant will not be subject to these regulations.  The applicant has agreed to permit conditions which will limit emissions of the above contaminants to less than the above thresholds.  The permittee will be required to maintain records and to report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.  Persons wishing to inspect the subject ASF files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the “permitting authority”) that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative below.  It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files.  The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.  DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.  A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.  A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment.  DEC’s determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists.  If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments.  The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.  Comments and requests for a legislative hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.  An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination.  An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist.  A copy of the Department’s permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department’s wed site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.  The application 4-4215-00054/00179 is available for review at the Region 4 Office, 1130 North Westcott Rd., Schenectady, NY.  The contact person is Andy Marcuccio (518) 357-2069.
