Astoria Gas Turbine Power, LLC - Applicant (Astoria Gas Turbine Power, LLC [Astoria]) applied to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) for an ECL Article 19 Air Title V permit for Astoria's proposed replacement of the existing turbines at its facility with a new state-of-the art simple cycle dual-fuel peaking combustion turbine generator (CTG). The new CTG would be a highly efficient, quick start, fast-ramping unit that has a nominal generating output of about 437 megawatts, and would use natural gas as the primary fuel.

NYS DEC issued a combined notice on June 30, 2021, and conducted public comment hearings on August 24 and 26, 2021. On October 27, 2021, NYS DEC issued a notice of denial of the Title V permit application pursuant to title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (6 NYCRR) 621.10(f). Under cover of letter dated November 26, 2021, Astoria filed a request for hearing from the NYS DEC's denial. The facility is located at 31-01 20th Avenue, Astoria (Queens County), New York.

A legislative public comment hearing pursuant to 6 NYCRR part 624 to hear and receive unsworn comments from the public will be held on March 15, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. The hearing is being conducted electronically through the Webex Events electronic webinar platform.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
