Abstract: The NSPS for Stationary Gas Turbines were proposed on October 3, 1977, and promulgated on September 10, 1979. Owners and operators of stationary gas turbines must submit a one-time-only notification report of construction/reconstruction, modification, and startup date, initial performance test date, physical or operational changes, and demonstration of a continuous monitoring system. They also must provide a report on initial performance test result, monitoring results, and any excess emissions. Records must be maintained for the following topics: startups, shutdowns, and malfunctions; periods when the continuous monitoring system is inoperative; sulfur and nitrogen content of the fuel; fuel to water ratio; rate of fuel consumption; and ambient conditions. Semiannual reports are also required.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Stationary gas turbines.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart GG).

Estimated number of respondents: 535 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 68,447 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $6,695,243 (per year), which includes zero annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the number of affected facilities or the number of burden hours as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. However, there is an increase in the estimated labor costs for industry and a decrease in the estimated labor costs for the Agency when compared to the previous ICR. This is not due to any program changes. They are the result of updated industry labor rates, which resulted in an increase in industry labor costs; and of a mathematical correction to the Agency cost estimate in the previous ICR.
