For the purpose of these regulations, a distributed generator is defined as any equipment that converts primary fuel, including fossil fuel and renewable fuel, into electricity or electricity and thermal energy, and has a nameplate capacity less than 15 MW that generates electricity for other than emergency use. Electricity generated may be used either on-site or for sale under an agreement with a utility, other market participant or system operator. The construction or modification of distributed generators may be exempt from new source general permit requirements. These regulations list emissions allowances and certification requirements for distributed generators, as well as information on credit for concurrent emissions reductions.
