§ 123.118. Emission reduction credit provisions.

 (a)  NOx affected sources may create, transfer and use emission reduction credits in accordance with Chapter 127 (relating to construction, modification, reactivation and operation of sources) and this section. ERCs may not be used to satisfy NOx allowance requirements.

 (b)  Emission reductions made through overcontrol, curtailment or shutdown for which allowances are banked are not surplus and may not be used to create ERCs.

 (c)  A NOx affected source may transfer NOx ERCs to an NOx affected source if the new or modified NOx affected source’s ozone season (May 1—September 30) allowable emissions do not exceed the ozone season portion of the baseline emissions which were used to generate the NOx ERCs.

 (d)  A NOx affected source may transfer NOx ERCs to a non-NOx affected source under the following conditions:

   (1)  The non-NOx affected source’s ozone season (May 1—September 30) allowable emissions may not exceed the ozone season portion of the baseline emissions which were used to generate the NOx ERCs.

   (2)  The NATS account for NOx affected sources which generated ERCs transferred to non-NOx affected sources, including prior to the date of publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, shall have a corresponding number of allowances retired that reflect the transfer of emissions regulated under § §  123.101—123.117, 123.119—123.120 and this section (relating to NOx allowance requirements) to the NOx nonaffected sources. The amount of annual NOx allowances deducted shall be equivalent to that portion of the nonaffected source’s NOx control period allowable emissions which were provided for by the NOx ERCs from the affected source.

   (3)  Allocations for NOx allowance control periods following 2002 to the NOx ERC generating source may not include the allowances identified in paragraph (2).
