Notice Inviting Written Public Comment
Notice is hereby given that the Feather River Air Quality Management District (District) is issuing a Permit to Operate for the following electricity generating facility that requires offsets:
Greenleaf 1 Project
5087 South Township Road
Yuba City, CA 95993
Stationary sources of air pollution are required to obtain operating permits under the District’s rules and regulations. The Permit to Operate summarizes all air-related local, state, and federal requirements that apply to each source of emissions at the facility. The District Rule 10.1 requires a 30-day public notice within 10 days of a preliminary decision on an Authority to Construct that triggers offset requirements. The Authority to Construct for Greenleaf 1 Project was issued under a Governor's State of Emergency Proclamation (dated July 30, 2021), to expedite clean energy projects, and an emergency order issued by the Department of Energy pursuant to section 202(c) of the Federal Power Act. Therefore, the District is accepting written public comment on the Permit to Operate instead of the Authority to Construct.
The District invites written comments on the Permit to Operate. Comments must be received by November 4, 2022. Any interested person may also request a public hearing for this permit by submitting a request in writing to the District. The District will hold a public hearing if there is evidence that the proposed permit is not correct or is not adequate to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, and a hearing will likely provide additional information that will affect the drafting and/or issuance of the permit. Please send written comments to Christopher D. Brown AICP, Air Pollution Control Officer, FRAQMD, 541 Washington Ave, Yuba City, CA 95991.
The proposed Permit to Operate, District analysis, and permit application are available for public inspection at the District office at the above address. The Permit to Operate is also available here:Greenleaf I Project Permit to Operate Sept 30, 2022
