Applicant: KEYSPAN-PORT Jefferson Energy Center LLC
One Metrotech Ctr 18TH Fl
Brooklyn, NY 11201 -3851
Facility: Port Jefferson Energy Center
Beach Street
Port Jefferson, NY 11777
Application ID: 1-4722-04141/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Brookhaven, Suffolk County
Project Description:
KeySpan proposes to raise the current emission cap, which is an annual limit based on a daily rolling average, on emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) at their Port Jefferson Energy Center.  KeySpan proposes to increase the current emissions cap on CO from 90 tons per year (TPY) to 99.9 TPY, in accordance with the regulations.  
    This proposed increase is requested to allow the Port Jefferson facility to continue to operate, since KeySpan is projecting that the facility will reach its current annual cap (rolled daily) by the end of August.  Therefore, KeySpan is proposing the cap increase in lieu of shutting down these units and operating higher emitting sources in the KeySpan electric generating system.  The increase in the cap is not significant, and does not "trigger" new source review.  However, KeySpan will voluntarily reduce its current NOx cap on Boilers 3 and 4 at the Port Jefferson Power Station facility from 2199 TPY down to 2178.7 TPY.
    The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this air application, and a draft permit is available for review by calling the contact person listed below.
