Download as PDF 67266 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 236 / Monday, December 9, 2019 / Notices Notice of data availability (NODA). ACTION: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing notice of the availability of preliminary lists of units eligible for second-round allocations of emission allowances for the 2019 control periods from the new unit setasides (NUSAs) established under the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) trading programs. EPA has posted spreadsheets containing the lists on EPA’s website. EPA will consider timely objections to the lists before determining the amounts of the secondround allocations. DATES: Objections to the information referenced in this notice must be received on or before January 8, 2020. ADDRESSES: Submit your objections via email to CSAPR_NUSA@epa.gov. Include ‘‘2019 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 Jason Kuhns at (202) 564–3236 or kuhns.jason@epa.gov or Andrew Reighart at (202) 564–0418 or reighart.andrew@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 EPA’s preliminary identification of units eligible to receive allowances in the second round of NUSA allocations for the 2019 control periods. The units eligible for second-round allocations for khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Dec 06, 2019 Jkt 250001 a given control period are CSAPRaffected units that commenced commercial operation between January 1 of the year before that control period and November 30 of the year of that control period. In the case of the 2019 control periods, an eligible unit therefore must have commenced commercial operation between January 1, 2018 and November 30, 2019 (inclusive). Generally, where a unit is eligible to receive a second-round NUSA allocation under a given CSAPR trading program for a given control period, the unit’s maximum potential second-round allocation equals the positive difference (if any) between the unit’s emissions during the control period as reported under 40 CFR part 75 and any first-round NUSA allocation the unit received. If the total of such maximum potential allocations to all eligible units would exceed the total allowances remaining in the NUSA, the allocations are reduced on a pro-rata basis. EPA notes that under 40 CFR 97.406(c)(3), 97.506(c)(3), 97.606(c)(3), 97.706(c)(3), and 97.806(c)(3), a unit’s emissions occurring before its monitor certification deadline are not considered to have occurred during a control period and consequently are not included in the emission amounts used to determine NUSA allocations. The preliminary lists of eligible units are set forth in Excel spreadsheets titled ‘‘CSAPR_NUSA_2019_NOX_Annual_ 2nd_Round_Prelim_Data,’’ ‘‘CSAPR_ NUSA_2019_NOX_Ozone_Season_2nd_ Round_Prelim_Data,’’ and’’ ‘‘CSAPR_ NUSA_2019_SO2_2nd_Round_Prelim_ Data’’ available on EPA’s website at https://www.epa.gov/csapr/csaprcompliance-year-2019-nusa-nodas. Each spreadsheet contains a separate worksheet for each state covered by that program showing each unit preliminarily identified as eligible for a second-round NUSA allocation. Each state worksheet also contains a summary showing (1) the quantity of allowances initially available in that state’s 2019 NUSA, (2) the sum of the 2019 NUSA allowance allocations that were made in the first round to new units in that state, if any, and (3) the quantity of allowances in the 2019 NUSA available for second-round allocations to new units (or ultimately for allocations to existing units), if any. Objections should be strictly limited to whether EPA has correctly identified the units eligible for second-round 2019 NUSA allocations according to the criteria established in the regulations and should be emailed to the address identified in ADDRESSES. Objections must include: (1) Precise identification of the specific data the commenter PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 believes are inaccurate, (2) new proposed data upon which the commenter believes EPA should rely instead, and (3) the reasons why EPA should rely on the commenter’s proposed data 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 NUSA allowances have been allocated for a given control period is not actually an affected unit as of the start of that control period. (Authority: 40 CFR 97.411(b), 97.511(b), 97.611(b), 97.711(b), and 97.811(b).) Dated: November 30, 2019. Reid P.
