The Feather River Air Quality Management District is a local agency that regulates stationary sources of air pollution such as manufacturing facilities, coating operations, and gasoline stations. State law requires that the Air District must notify the public when it receives a permit application for a new or modified source of toxic air contaminants located within 1,000 feet of a school site. To comply with this requirement, the Air District distributes a Public Notice to the parents or guardians of students enrolled at schools located within 1,000 feet of the proposed source and all residents and businesses located within 1,000 feet of the proposed source.
A description of the proposed project:
PG&E has applied for an Authority to Construct and/or Permit to Operate for a diesel generator set that will provide backup power to a photovoltaic solar energy and battery Remote Grid. The generator will be used to generate power if the solar and battery cannot meet the needs of the Remote Grid. In addition, the engine will be periodically tested to ensure that it will generate electricity when needed. The generator set consists of an alternator and an internal combustion engine. Internal combustion engines emit air contaminants, including oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, oxides of sulfur, and particulate matter. Diesel particulate matter is also a Toxic Air Contaminant.
The District is currently evaluating the application and hereby invites written public comment in accordance with California Health and Safety Code 42301.6. Written comments must be received before or on 7/10/2021. Please address written comments to:
