SAN DIEGO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT
FOR YOUR INFORMATION
The Following Notice was Published by the District
NOTICE OF PRELIMINARY DECISION
TO APPROVE A SOURCE OF AIR POLLUTION BY THE
SAN DIEGO AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT
The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District hereby gives notice that in accordance with Rule 20.3 of the District's Rules and Regulations, the Air Pollution Control Officer has made a preliminary decision to approve the Carlsbad Energy Center LLC's proposed development of the Carlsbad Energy Center Project (District Application Nos. 985745, 985747, and 985748), a 558 megawatt combined cycled power plant consisting of two natural-gas-fired combustion turbine generators, each with a heat recovery steam generator and emission control equipment, and a diesel fire pump engine, to be located at 4600 Carlsbad Blvd., Carlsbad, California, on the same grounds as the existing Encina Power Station.
The District performed an evaluation of the air pollution impacts of this proposal and the equipment is expected to operate in compliance with all applicable District Rules and Regulations and all applicable federal requirements. The proposed permit incorporates conditions necessary to ensure compliance with all federal and District requirements.
The proposed permit would allow the new equipment to emit, potentially, a maximum of 72.76 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen, 339.9 tons per year of carbon monoxide, 25.0 tons per year of volatile organic compounds, 39.0 tons per year of particulate matter less than or equal to 10 microns in diameter, and 5.6 tons per year of oxides of sulfur. These emission increases would be partially offset by the retirement of three of the five existing utility boilers at the Encina Power Station.
The District is seeking comments on this proposed permit action. Written comments concerning the District's proposed action may be submitted for a period of 30 days, commencing on November 25, 2008, and ending on December 24, 2008. Please direct your comments to the attention of Steven Moore, Air Pollution Control District, 10124 Old Grove Road, San Diego, CA 92131. Documents relating to the proposed action are available for public review at this address.
Should you have any questions regarding this notice or wish to make an appointment to review documents related to this action, please contact Steven Moore at (858) 586-2750.
