Work in unison.

The requirements of this chapter, are based upon chapter 80.70 RCW and are separate and distinct from the requirements found in chapter 463-85 WAC - greenhouse gases performance standard that are based upon chapter 80.80 RCW. These two requirements are required to work in unison with each other in a serial manner. The first requirement is the emissions performance standard under chapters 80.80 RCW and 463-85 WAC. Once that standard is met, the requirements of chapters 80.70 RCW and 463-80 WAC are applied.

Carbon dioxide mitigation program costs.

Reasonable and necessary costs for EFSEC's carbon dioxide mitigation program shall be charged to applicants and certificate holders as authorized by RCW 80.70.060 and 80.50.071.
[Statutory Authority: Chapters 80.70 and 80.80 RCW and RCW 80.50.040. WSR 08-14-064, § 463-80-040, filed 6/25/08, effective 7/26/08.]



463-80-050
Calculating total carbon dioxide emissions to be mitigated.

(1) Step 1 is to calculate the total quantity of CO2. The total quantity of CO2 is referred to as the maximum potential emissions of CO2. The maximum potential emissions of CO2 is defined as the annual CO2 emission rate. The annual CO2 emission rate is derived by the following formula unless a differing analysis is necessary or appropriate for the electric generating process and type of equipment:
CO2rate
=
Fs x Ks
x Ts +
F1 x K1
x T1 +
F2 x K2
x T2
F3 x K3
x T3 . . .
Fn x Kn
x Tn
2204.6
2204.6
2204.6
2204.6
2204.6
where:
CO2rate
=
Maximum potential emissions in metric tons per year
F1 - n
=
Maximum design fuel firing rate in MMBtu/hour calculated as manufacturer or designer's guaranteed total net station generating capability in MWe times the new equipment heat rate in Btu/MWe. Determined based on higher heating values of fuel
K1 - n
=
Conversion factor for the fuel(s) being evaluated in lb CO2/MMBtu for fuel Fn
T1 - n
=
Hours per year fuel Fn is allowed to be used. The default is 8760 hours unless there is a limitation on hours in a site certification agreement
Fs
=
Maximum design supplemental fuel firing rate in MMBtu/hour, at higher heating value of the fuel
Ks
=
Conversion factor for the supplemental fuel being evaluated in lb CO2/MMBtu for fuel Fn given fuel
Ts
=
Hours per year supplemental fuel Fn is allowed. The default is 8760 hours unless there is a limitation on hours in a site certification agreement
(a) When there are multiple new fossil-fueled electric generating units, the above calculation will be performed for each unit and the total CO2 emissions of all units will be summed.
(b) When a unit or facility is allowed to use multiple fuels, the maximum allowed hours on the highest CO2 producing fuels will be utilized for each fuel until the total of all hours per fuel add up to the allowable annual hours.
(c) When a new unit or facility is allowed to use multiple fuels without restriction, this calculation will be performed assuming that the fuel with the highest CO2 emission rate is used 100% of the time.
(d) When the annual operating hours are restricted for any reason, the total of all T1 - n hours equals the annual allowable hours of operation in the site certification agreement.
(e) Fuel to CO2 conversion factors (derived from the EPA's AP-42, Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors):

(2) Step 2 - Insert the annual CO2 rate to determine the total carbon dioxide emissions to be mitigated. The formula below includes specifications that are part of the total carbon dioxide definition:
Total CO2 Emissions = CO2rate x 30 x 0.6
(3) Step 3 - Determine and apply the cogeneration credit (if any). Where the cogeneration unit or facility qualifies for cogeneration credit, the cogeneration credit is the annual CO2 emission rate (in metric tons per year) and is calculated as shown below or similar method:
CO2credit
=
Hs
x (Ka) ÷ n
2204.6
where:
CO2credit
=
The annual CO2 credit for cogeneration in metric tons/year.
Hs
=
Annual heat energy supplied by the cogeneration plant to the "steam host" per the contract or other binding obligation/agreement between the parties in MMBtu/yr as substantiated by an engineering analysis.
Ka
=
The time weighted average CO2 emission rate constant for the cogeneration plant in lb CO2/MMBtu supplied. The time-weighted average is calculated similarly to the above method described in subsection (1) of this section.
n
=
Efficiency of new boiler that would provide the same quantity of thermal energy. Assume n = 0.85 unless applicant provides information supporting a different value.
Calculate the metric tons of the cogeneration credit over the 30 year period.
Cogeneration Credit = CO2credit x 30
(4) Step 4 - Apply the mitigation factor.
(a) RCW 80.70.020(4) states that "Fossil-fueled thermal electric generation facilities that receive site certification approval or an order of approval shall provide mitigation for twenty percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions produced by the facility."
(b) The CO2 emissions mitigation quantity is determined by the following formula:
Mitigation Quantity = Total CO2 Emissions x 0.2 - Cogeneration Credit
where:
Mitigation quantity
=
The total CO2 emissions to be mitigated in metric tons.
CO2rate
=
The annual maximum CO2 emissions from the generating facility in tons/year.
0.2
=
The mitigation factor in RCW 80.70.020(4).
(5) Additional restrictions for modifications to an existing facility not involving installation of new generating units. The quantity of CO2 to be mitigated is calculated by the same methods used for the new generating units with the following restrictions:
(a) The quantity of CO2 subject to mitigation is only that resulting from the modification and does not include the CO2 emissions occurring prior to the modification;
(b) An increase in operating hours or other operational limitations established in a site certification agreement is not an exempt modification under this regulation. However, only increased CO2 emissions related to the increase in operating hours or changes to any other operational restriction are subject to the CO2 mitigation program requirements;
(c) The annual emissions (CO2rate) is the difference between the premodification condition and the postmodification condition, but using the like new heat rate for the combustion equipment; and
(d) The cogeneration credit may be used, but only if it is a new cogeneration credit, not a cogeneration agreement or arrangement established prior to July 1, 2004, or used in a prior CO2 mitigation evaluation.
[Statutory Authority: Chapters 80.70 and 80.80 RCW and RCW 80.50.040. WSR 08-14-064, § 463-80-050, filed 6/25/08, effective 7/26/08.]



463-80-060
Carbon dioxide mitigation plan requirements and options.

(1) Once the total carbon dioxide emissions mitigation quantity is calculated, what is next? The facility must mitigate that level of carbon dioxide emissions. A CO2 mitigation plan is required and must be approved as part of a site certification agreement. A mitigation plan is a proposal that includes the process or means to achieve carbon dioxide mitigation through use of mitigation projects or carbon credits (RCW 80.70.010).
The approved mitigation plan must be fully implemented and operational in accordance with the schedule in the site certification agreement. The applicant may request an extension of the mitigation project implementation deadline. The request must be submitted in writing to EFSEC before the implementation deadline. The request must fully document the reason(s) more time is needed to implement the mitigation project and propose a revised schedule.
(2) What are the mitigation plan options? The options are identified in RCW 80.70.020(3), which states that "An applicant for a fossil-fueled thermal electric generation facility shall include one or a combination of the following carbon dioxide mitigation options as part of its mitigation plan:
(a) Payment to a third party to provide mitigation;
(b) Direct purchase of permanent carbon credits; or
(c) Investment in applicant-controlled carbon dioxide mitigation projects, including combined heat and power (cogeneration)."
(3) What are the requirements of the payment to a third-party option? The payment to a third party option requirements are found in RCW 80.70.020 (5) and (6). Subsection (5) identifies the mitigation rate for this option and describes the process for changing the mitigation rate. Subsection (6) describes the payment options.
The initial mitigation rate is $1.60 per metric ton of carbon dioxide to be mitigated. If there is a cogeneration plant, the monetary amount is based on the difference between twenty percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions and the cogeneration credit. The mitigation rate will change when EFSEC adjusts it through the process described in RCW 80.70.020 (5)(a) and (b). The total payment amount = mitigation rate x mitigation quantity.
An applicant may choose between a lump sum payment or partial payment over a period of five years. The lump sum payment is described in RCW 80.70.020 (6)(a) and (b). The payment amount is the mitigation quantity multiplied by the per ton mitigation rate. The entire payment amount is due to the independent qualified organization no later than one hundred twenty days after the start of commercial operation.
The alternative to a one-time payment is a partial payment described in RCW 80.70.020 (6)(c). Under this alternative, twenty percent of the total payment is due to the independent qualified organization no later than one hundred twenty days after the start of commercial operation. A payment of the same amount (or an adjusted amount if the rate is changed under RCW 80.70.020 (5)(a)) is due on the anniversary date of the initial payment for the next four consecutive years. In addition, the applicant is required to provide a letter of credit or comparable security for the remaining 80% at the time of the first payment. The letter of credit (or comparable security) must also include possible rate changes.
(4) What are the requirements of the permanent carbon credits option? RCW 80.70.030 identifies the criteria and specifies that these credits cannot be resold without approval from EFSEC. The permanent carbon credit criteria of RCW 80.70.030(1) are as follows:
(a) Credits must derive from real, verified, permanent, and enforceable carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide equivalents emission mitigation not otherwise required by statute, regulation, or other legal requirements;
(b) The credits must be acquired after July 1, 2004; and
(c) The credits may not have been used for other carbon dioxide mitigation projects.
(5) What are the requirements for the applicant-controlled mitigation projects option? RCW 80.70.040 identifies the requirements for applicant controlled mitigation projects. Subsections (1) through (5) specify the criteria. The direct investment cost of the applicant controlled mitigation project including funds used for selection, monitoring, and evaluation of mitigation projects cannot be required by EFSEC to exceed the cost of making a lump sum payment to a third party per subsection (3) of this section.
The applicant controlled mitigation project must be:
(a) Implemented through mitigation projects conducted directly by, or under the control of the site certification agreement holder;
(b) Approved by EFSEC and incorporated as a condition of the site certification agreement; and
(c) Operational within one year after the start of commercial operation. Failure to implement an approved mitigation plan is subject to enforcement under chapter 80.50 RCW.
(d) The certificate holder may not use more than twenty percent of the total funds for the selection, monitoring, and evaluation of mitigation projects, and the management and enforcement of contracts.
