CPCN Waivers for New Electric Generation Revised
Effective March 18, 2013, the threshold for a waiver from the Public Service Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity(CPCN) exemption for electric generators increased from 373 Kilowatts (kw) to no greater than 1500kw. Applicants proposing to install a new electric generator rated at 1500kw or less will no longer be required to obtain a CPCN waiver prior to obtaining an Air Quality permit to construct from the Air and Radiation Management Administration. The threshold for obtaining a permit to construct for electric generators remains unchanged at 373kw or greater.
For questions about the change, please contact Dave Mummert at 410-537-3230 or email@example.com.
