Abstract: Section 7004(b) of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) gives EPA broad authority to provide for, encourage and assist public participation in the development, revision, implementation and enforcement of any regulation, guideline, information or program under RCRA. In addition, the statute specifies certain public notices (i.e., radio, newspaper, and a letter to relevant agencies) that EPA must provide before issuing any RCRA permit. The statute also establishes a process by which the public can dispute a permit and request a public hearing to discuss it. EPA carries out much of its RCRA public involvement at 40 CFR 124 and 40 CFR 270. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Private facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (RCRA 7004(b)). Estimated number of respondents: 59. Frequency of response: On occasion. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Jun 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 Total estimated burden: 5,614 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $369,547 (per year), includes $5,681 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is increase of 2,609 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to the adjustment in the respondent universe from 33 to 59. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Abstract: In 2002, EPA launched two new partnership programs with industry and other stakeholders: The Green Power Partnership (GPP) and the Combined Heat and Power Partnership (CHPP). These voluntary partnership programs encourage organizations to invest in clean, efficient energy technologies, including renewable energy and combined heat and power. To continue to be successful, it is critical that EPA collect information from GPP and CHPP Partners to ensure these organizations are meeting their renewable energy and CHP goals and to assure the credibility of these voluntary partnership programs. EPA has developed this ICR to obtain authorization to collect information from organizations participating in the GPP and CHPP. Organizations that join these programs voluntarily agree to the following respective actions: (1) Designating a Green Power or CHP liaison and filling out a Partnership E:\FR\FM\26JNN1.SGM 26JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 123 / Friday, June 26, 2015 / Notices Agreement or Letter of Intent (LOI) respectively, (2) for the GPP, reporting to EPA, on an annual basis, their progress toward their green power commitment via a 3-page reporting form; (3) for the CHP Partnership, reporting to EPA information on their existing CHP projects, new project development, and other CHP-related activities via a one-page reporting form (for projects) or via an informal email or phone call (for other CHP-related activities). GPP partners that wish to receive additional recognition for their effort in green power use and promotion may submit an application for the Green Power Leadership Award. EPA uses the data obtained from its Partners to assess the success of these programs in achieving their national energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals. Partners are organizational entities that have volunteered to participate in either Partnership program. Respondents/affected entities: Organizations participating in the Green Power Partnership program and the Combined Heat and Power Partnership program. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 2,565 (total). Frequency of response: One time, annually, on occasion. Total estimated burden: 6,624 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $822,459 (per year), includes $7,695 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 801 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. Since the last ICR renewal, both the Green Power Partnership and CHP Partnership have introduced program efficiencies to reduce program burden by encouraging the electronic submission of documents. The average number of hours per Partners has increased slightly from 3.25 to 3.58, the total hourly burden increased primarily due to an increase in the number of Partners in both programs and for the addition of the Green Power Leadership Award application.
