Electricity generating units that burn fossil fuels supply most of the nationäó»s electricity and are major sources of air pollution. Under the Clean Air Act, such units are subject to NSR, a permitting process that applies to (1) units built after August 7, 1977, and (2) existing units that undertake a major modification. Owners of such units must obtain from the appropriate permitting agency a preconstruction permit that sets emission limits and requires the use of certain pollution control technologies. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) oversees statesäó» implementation of NSR, including reviewing and commenting on draft permits issued by state and local permitting agencies. This report examined (1) what information EPA maintains on NSR permits issued to fossil fuel electricity generating units; (2) challenges, if any, that EPA, state, and local agencies face in ensuring compliance with requirements to obtain NSR permits; and (3) what available data show about compliance with requirements to obtain NSR permits. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
