The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing notice of the availability of data on emission allowance allocations to certain units under the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) trading programs. EPA has completed preliminary calculations for the first round of allocations of allowances from the CSAPR new unit set-asides (NUSAs) for the 2018 control periods and has posted spreadsheets containing the calculations on EPA’s website. EPA will consider timely objections to the preliminary calculations (including objections concerning the identification of units eligible for allocations) before determining the final amounts of the first-round allocations. DATES: Objections to the information referenced in this notice must be received on or before June 11, 2018. ADDRESSES: Submit your objections via email to CSAPR_NUSA@epa.gov. Include ‘‘2018 NUSA allocations’’ in the email subject line and include your name, title, affiliation, address, phone number, and email address in the body of the email. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions concerning this action should be addressed to Kenon Smith at (202) 343–9164 or smith.kenon@epa.gov or Jason Kuhns at (202) 564–3236 or kuhns.jason@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under each CSAPR trading program where EPA is responsible for determining emission allowance allocations, a portion of each state’s emissions budget for the program for each control period is reserved in a NUSA (and in an additional Indian country NUSA in the case of states with Indian country within their borders) for allocation to certain units that would not otherwise receive allowance allocations. The procedures for identifying the eligible units for each control period and for allocating allowances from the NUSAs and Indian country NUSAs to these units are set forth in the CSAPR trading program regulations at 40 CFR 97.411(b) and 97.412 (NOX Annual), 97.511(b) and 97.512 (NOX Ozone Season Group 1), 97.611(b) and 97.612 (SO2 Group 1), 97.711(b) and 97.712 (SO2 Group 2), and 97.811(b) and 97.812 (NOX Ozone Season Group 2). Each NUSA allowance allocation process involves up to two rounds of allocations to eligible units, termed ‘‘new’’ units, followed by the allocation to ‘‘existing’’ units of any allowances not allocated to new units. This notice concerns preliminary calculations for the first round of NUSA SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 allowance allocations for the 2018 control periods. Generally, the allocation procedures call for each eligible unit to receive a first-round 2018 NUSA allocation equal to its 2017 emissions as reported under 40 CFR part 75 unless the total of such allocations to all eligible units would exceed the amount of allowances in the NUSA, in which case the allocations are reduced on a pro-rata basis. The detailed unit-by-unit data and preliminary allowance allocation calculations are set forth in Excel spreadsheets titled ‘‘CSAPR_NUSA_ 2018_NOX_Annual_1st_Round_Prelim_ Data’’, ‘‘CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOX_OS_ 1st_Round_Prelim_Data’’, and ‘‘CSAPR_ NUSA_2018_SO2_1st_Round_Prelim_ Data,’’ available on EPA’s website at https://www.epa.gov/csapr/new-unitset-aside-notices-data-availability-nusanoda-cross-state-air-pollution-rule. Each of the spreadsheets contains a separate worksheet for each state covered by that program showing, for each unit identified as eligible for a first-round NUSA allocation, (1) the unit’s emissions in the 2017 control period (annual or ozone season as applicable), (2) the maximum first-round 2018 NUSA allowance allocation for which the unit is eligible (typically the unit’s emissions in the 2017 control period), (3) various adjustments to the unit’s maximum allocation, many of which are necessary only if the NUSA pool is oversubscribed, and (4) the preliminary calculation of the unit’s first-round 2018 NUSA allowance allocation. Each state worksheet also contains a summary showing (1) the quantity of allowances initially available in that state’s 2018 NUSA, (2) the sum of the first-round 2018 NUSA allowance allocations that will be made to new units in that state, assuming there are no corrections to the data, and (3) the quantity of allowances that would remain in the 2018 NUSA for use in second-round allocations to new units (or ultimately for allocation to existing units), again assuming there are no corrections to the data. Objections should be strictly limited to the data and calculations upon which the NUSA allowance allocations are based and should be emailed to the address identified in ADDRESSES. Objections must include: (1) Precise identification of the specific data and/or calculations the commenter believes are inaccurate, (2) new proposed data and/ or calculations upon which the commenter believes EPA should rely instead to determine allowance allocations, and (3) the reasons why EPA should rely on the commenter’s E:\FR\FM\10MYN1.SGM 10MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 91 / Thursday, May 10, 2018 / Notices proposed data and/or calculations and not the data referenced in this notice. EPA notes that an allocation or lack of allocation of allowances to a given unit does not constitute a determination that CSAPR does or does not apply to the unit. EPA also notes that under 40 CFR 97.411(c), 97.511(c), 97.611(c), 97.711(c), and 97.811(c), allocations are subject to potential correction if a unit to which allowances have been allocated for a given control period is not actually an affected unit as of the start of that control period.

Allocations of Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Allowances From New 
Unit Set-Asides for 2018 Control Periods

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of data availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing notice 
of the availability of data on emission allowance allocations to 
certain units under the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) trading 
programs. EPA has completed preliminary calculations for the first 
round of allocations of allowances from the CSAPR new unit set-asides 
(NUSAs) for the 2018 control periods and has posted spreadsheets 
containing the calculations on EPA's website. EPA will consider timely 
objections to the preliminary calculations (including objections 
concerning the identification of units eligible for allocations) before 
determining the final amounts of the first-round allocations.

DATES: Objections to the information referenced in this notice must be 
received on or before June 11, 2018.

ADDRESSES: Submit your objections via email to [email protected]. 
Include ``2018 NUSA allocations'' in the email subject line and include 
your name, title, affiliation, address, phone number, and email address 
in the body of the email.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions concerning this action 
should be addressed to Kenon Smith at (202) 343-9164 or 
[email protected] or Jason Kuhns at (202) 564-3236 or 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under each CSAPR trading program where EPA 
is responsible for determining emission allowance allocations, a 
portion of each state's emissions budget for the program for each 
control period is reserved in a NUSA (and in an additional Indian 
country NUSA in the case of states with Indian country within their 
borders) for allocation to certain units that would not otherwise 
receive allowance allocations. The procedures for identifying the 
eligible units for each control period and for allocating allowances 
from the NUSAs and Indian country NUSAs to these units are set forth in 
the CSAPR trading program regulations at 40 CFR 97.411(b) and 97.412 
(NOX Annual), 97.511(b) and 97.512 (NOX Ozone 
Season Group 1), 97.611(b) and 97.612 (SO2 Group 1), 
97.711(b) and 97.712 (SO2 Group 2), and 97.811(b) and 97.812 
(NOX Ozone Season Group 2). Each NUSA allowance allocation 
process involves up to two rounds of allocations to eligible units, 
termed ``new'' units, followed by the allocation to ``existing'' units 
of any allowances not allocated to new units.
    This notice concerns preliminary calculations for the first round 
of NUSA allowance allocations for the 2018 control periods. Generally, 
the allocation procedures call for each eligible unit to receive a 
first-round 2018 NUSA allocation equal to its 2017 emissions as 
reported under 40 CFR part 75 unless the total of such allocations to 
all eligible units would exceed the amount of allowances in the NUSA, 
in which case the allocations are reduced on a pro-rata basis.
    The detailed unit-by-unit data and preliminary allowance allocation 
calculations are set forth in Excel spreadsheets titled 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOX_Annual_1st_Round_Prelim_Data'', 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_NOX_OS_1st_Round_Prelim_Data'', and 
``CSAPR_NUSA_2018_SO2_1st_Round_Prelim_Data,'' available on EPA's 
website at https://www.epa.gov/csapr/new-unit-set-aside-notices-data-availability-nusa-noda-cross-state-air-pollution-rule. Each of the 
spreadsheets contains a separate worksheet for each state covered by 
that program showing, for each unit identified as eligible for a first-
round NUSA allocation, (1) the unit's emissions in the 2017 control 
period (annual or ozone season as applicable), (2) the maximum first-
round 2018 NUSA allowance allocation for which the unit is eligible 
(typically the unit's emissions in the 2017 control period), (3) 
various adjustments to the unit's maximum allocation, many of which are 
necessary only if the NUSA pool is oversubscribed, and (4) the 
preliminary calculation of the unit's first-round 2018 NUSA allowance 
allocation.
    Each state worksheet also contains a summary showing (1) the 
quantity of allowances initially available in that state's 2018 NUSA, 
(2) the sum of the first-round 2018 NUSA allowance allocations that 
will be made to new units in that state, assuming there are no 
corrections to the data, and (3) the quantity of allowances that would 
remain in the 2018 NUSA for use in second-round allocations to new 
units (or ultimately for allocation to existing units), again assuming 
there are no corrections to the data.
    Objections should be strictly limited to the data and calculations 
upon which the NUSA allowance allocations are based and should be 
emailed to the address identified in ADDRESSES. Objections must 
include: (1) Precise identification of the specific data and/or 
calculations the commenter believes are inaccurate, (2) new proposed 
data and/or calculations upon which the commenter believes EPA should 
rely instead to determine allowance allocations, and (3) the reasons 
why EPA should rely on the commenter's

[[Page 21773]]

proposed data and/or calculations and not the data referenced in this 
notice.
    EPA notes that an allocation or lack of allocation of allowances to 
a given unit does not constitute a determination that CSAPR does or 
does not apply to the unit. EPA also notes that under 40 CFR 97.411(c), 
97.511(c), 97.611(c), 97.711(c), and 97.811(c), allocations are subject 
to potential correction if a unit to which allowances have been 
allocated for a given control period is not actually an affected unit 
as of the start of that control period.
