227-3.2 Definitions.
(a) To the extent that they are not inconsistent with the specific definitions in subdivision (b) of this section, the general definitions of Parts 200, 201, and Subpart 227-2 of this Title apply.
(b) For the purposes of this Subpart, the following specific definitions apply:
(1) Black start resource.
An electric generating unit used to bring a facility from shutdown to operational without reliance on external supplies or the electrical system.
(2) Common control.
Refers to two or more emission sources and/or electric storage and/or renewable generation resources that are under the control of a single corporate entity. The corporate entity must:
(i) have the right to decide when to operate the plant; or
(ii) have the right to enter into a power purchase agreement or other agreement with the entity that owns the emission source and/or electric storage and/or renewable generation resources and provides the necessary paperwork required under section 227-3.3(b) of this Subpart.
(3) Electric storage resource.
A resource capable of receiving electric energy from the grid and storing it for later injection of electric energy back to the grid.
(4) Hydroelectric energy.
The conversion of potential and kinetic energy in the form of falling or fast-flowing water into mechanical energy which drives turbines producing electricity.
(5) MWh.
Megawatt hour of electricity.
(6) NYISO.
New York independent system operator.
(7) ORISPL.
Office of regulatory information systems plant code assigned by the energy information administration to electric generating units.
(8) Ozone season.
May 1st through September 30th of each calendar year.
(9) Power purchase agreement.
A contract between two entities pursuant to which one entity agrees to produce electricity, or some other power source, for the other entity over a defined period of time.
(10) Renewable generation resources.
Solar photovoltaic energy, wind energy, tidal energy or hydroelectric energy electricity generating systems.
(11) Solar photovoltaic energy.
Technology that directly converts the energy radiated by the sun as electromagnetic waves into electricity by means of solar panels.
(12) Substation.
An area or group of equipment to transform power from one voltage to another or from one system to another.
(13) Tidal energy.
The conversion of kinetic energy in the form of tide movement into mechanical energy which drives turbines connected to a generator to produce electricity.
(14) Wind energy.
The conversion of kinetic energy in the form of wind or air flows into mechanical energy which drives turbines connected to a generator to produce electricity.
