Environmental Compliance for Emergency Backup Electrical Generators

generator image

The notable environmental regulations that may apply to this equipment includes:

  1. EPA’s Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine (RICE) NESHAP Rule

  2. EPA SPCC Plan requirements (for the integrated fuel tank)

  3. State, or local, agency Air Permit or Source Registration requirements

If you manage properties that have diesel-fired Emergency Backup Electrical Generators, especially if you have multiple units in larger metropolitan areas, one or more of these regulations may likely apply.  Nova’s Engineering and Compliance Group has recently assisted numerous clients with ensuring compliance for Emergency Backup Electrical Generators at dozens of sites across the country.  Assessment of the applicable requirements can be conducted with a relatively simple review of equipment specifications and installation details.  Nova is highly experienced at completing NESHAP assessments and registrations, preparing SPCC Plans, and completing Air Permit Applications and Source Registrations to help owners and operators cost-effectively ensure compliance with the applicable environmental requirements.
