242-8.1 General requirements.
The owners and operators, and to the extent applicable, the CO2 authorized account representative of a CO2 budget unit, shall comply with the monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements as provided in this Subpart and all applicable sections of 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title). Where referenced in the Subpart, the monitoring requirements of 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) shall be adhered to in a manner consistent with the purpose of monitoring and reporting CO2 mass emissions pursuant to this Subpart. For purposes of complying with such requirements, the definitions in section 242-1.2 of this Part and in 40 CFR 72.2 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) shall apply, and the terms "affected unit," "designated representative," and "continuous emissions monitoring system" (or "CEMS") in 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) shall be replaced by the terms "CO2 budget unit," "CO2 authorized account representative," and "continuous emissions monitoring system" (or "CEMS"), respectively, as defined in section 242-1.2 of this Part. For units not subject to an acid rain emissions limitation, the term "administrator" in 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) shall be replaced with "the department or its agent." Owners or operators of a CO2 budget unit who monitor a non-CO2 budget unit pursuant to the common, multiple, or bypass stack procedures in 40 CFR 75.72(b)(2)(ii), or 40 CFR 75.16(b)(2)(ii)(B) as pursuant to 40 CFR 75.13 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title), for purposes of complying with this Part, shall monitor and report CO2 mass emissions from such non-CO2 budget unit according to the procedures for CO2 budget units established in sections 242-8.1 through 242-8.7 of this Subpart.
(a) Requirements for installation, certification, and data accounting.
The owner or operator of each CO2 budget unit must meet the following requirements:
(1) Install all monitoring systems necessary to monitor CO2 mass emissions in accordance with 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title), except for equation G1. Equation G1 in appendix G shall not be used to determine CO2 emissions under this Part. This may require systems to monitor CO2 concentration, stack gas flow rate, O2 concentration, heat input, and fuel flow rate.
(2) Successfully complete all certification tests required under section 242-8.2 of this Subpart and meet all other requirements of this Subpart and 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) applicable to the monitoring systems under paragraph (1) of this subdivision.
(3) Record, report and quality-assure the data from the monitoring systems under paragraph (1) of this subdivision.
(b) Compliance dates.
The owner or operator shall meet the monitoring system certification and other requirements of paragraphs (a)(1) through (3) of this section on or before the following dates. The owner or operator shall record, report and quality-assure the data from the monitoring systems under paragraph (a)(1) of this section on and after the following dates.
(1) The owner or operator of a CO2 budget unit, except for a CO2 budget unit under paragraph (3) of this subdivision, that commenced commercial operation before July 1, 2008, must comply with the requirements of this Subpart by January 1, 2009.
(2) The owner or operator of a CO2 budget unit subject to the applicability provisions in section 242-1.4(a)(2) of this Part, except for a CO2 budget unit under paragraph (3) of this subdivision, that commenced commercial operation before July 1, 2019, must comply with the requirements of this Subpart by January 1, 2021.
(3) The owner or operator of a CO2 budget unit that commences commercial operation on or after July 1, 2019 must comply with the requirements of this Subpart by the later of the following dates:
(i) January 1, 2020; or
(ii) the earlier of:
(a) 90 unit operating days after the date on which the unit commences commercial operation; or
(b) 180 calendar days after the date on which the unit commences commercial operation.
(4) For the owner or operator of a CO2 budget unit for which construction of a new stack or flue installation is completed after the applicable deadline under paragraph (1) or (2) of this subdivision by the earlier of:
(i) 90 unit operating days after the date on which emissions first exit to the atmosphere through the new stack or flue; or
(ii) 180 calendar days after the date on which emissions first exit to the atmosphere through the new stack or flue.
(c) Reporting data.
(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this subdivision, the owner or operator of a CO2 budget unit that does not meet the applicable compliance date set forth in paragraphs (b)(1), (2) and (3) of this section for any monitoring system under paragraph (a)(1) of this section shall, for each such monitoring system, determine, record, and report maximum potential (or as appropriate minimum potential) values for CO2 concentration, CO2 emissions rate, stack gas moisture content, fuel flow rate, heat input and any other parameter required to determine CO2 mass emissions in accordance with 40 CFR 75.31(b)(2) or (c)(3), or section 2.4 of appendix D of 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) as applicable.
(2) The owner or operator of a CO2 budget unit that does not meet the applicable compliance date set forth in paragraph (b)(3) of this section for any monitoring system under paragraph (a)(1) of this section shall, for each such monitoring system, determine, record, and report substitute data using the applicable missing data procedures in subpart D or appendix D of 40 CFR part 75 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title), in lieu of the maximum potential (or as appropriate minimum potential) values for a parameter if the owner or operator demonstrates that there is continuity between the data streams for that parameter before and after the construction or installation under paragraph (b)(3) of this section.
(3) Low mass emissions methodologies (LME).
(i) CO2 budget units subject to an acid rain emissions limitation or Parts 243, 244 and 245 of this Title that qualify for the optional SO2, NOx, and CO2 (for acid rain) or NOx (for Parts 243, 244 and 245 of this Title) emissions calculations for LME units under 40 CFR 75.19 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) and report emissions for such programs using the calculations under 40 CFR 75.19 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title), shall also use the CO2 emissions calculations for LME units under 40 CFR 75.19 (see table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) for purposes of compliance with this Subpart.
